Installing S/S brake lines?

Recommended Posts

I want to put S/S brake lines on MY2001 turbo coupe. I think it will add to the my pleasure but concerned I might have a "code" issue considering the brake sensors or whatever else. Havent ever got into brake work on this car before. Any thoughts?

Thank you

We do this all the time for customers; no, you should not get any codes. Suggest working on one corner at a time, disconnecting the hard lines first (one at a time), and keeping a short length of plugged rubber hose on had to cap the hard line while you disconnect and replace the flexible line. Something a couple inches in length in the 1/4 ID range and suitable bolt to plug the other end will do fine. What the cap does eliminate the need to rush to prevent the rest of the fluid from draining out of the hard lines and allowing air into the ABS control system, which would require either the OEM PIWIS or a Durametric system to cycle the system while flushing the lines with fresh fluid.

Take your time and you will be fine. We have never had anyone comment negatively on the results of going to SS, just make sure they are top quality and DOT approved. You should also have a full set of metric fitting wrenches to prevent rounding off any fittings while you are doing the swap.

thank you. It is in fact necessary to bleed brakes afterwards? do you have a brand name of S/S to purchase?

thanks again. Steve

Yes, you will need to bleed the brakes; this is good time to do a complete flush, which should be done every two years anyway.

We like, and use Goodridge lines; very well made and DOT compliant. Sold thru many outlets and online, including Tire Rack.
