Brake hardline question
not a engine question but a brake question really hopefully you guys will know how to help.
ok i accidentally broke my rear brake hardline yesterday in my crx running across the floor metal in the back, my question: is this something u can pick up or order at a typical car place like pepboys? or should i take it to a brake place and let them do it, if its something i can just buy a replacement part for then i'll definitely do it that way but it just broke yesterday and it looks like im gonna have to replace the hard line in order to make this work at all cuz its too high of pressure for normal silicon vacume lines with clamps TIA
I've seen them them at those kind of places... Standard straight lengths. You'll have to bend it into the right shape.

Tube nuts are your friend.
If you broke your hardline near the brake:
Get a tube nut to fit your hard line... should end up being -3 or -4. Then get a matching AN adapter to match your caliper. One piece of crimped hose, flare it, and viola!
If you broke it halfway down the car I'm not sure you'd want softline under the car.
yah im gonna check tonight, been calling junkyards but cant find my car type, they have special flanged ends that can handle the extreme pressure which is gonna be fun, otherwise it moving on to the dealer to pay the $$$ to let them fix it, DO NOT EVER THROW HEAVY CRAP ON LINE BRAKE LINES IN THE BACK OF UR CAR IF ITS GOT A STRIPPED INTERIOR. I learned the hard way for sure, this is a major hastle.
A tube nut can hold anything a stainless steel line can... it's just like the OEM flare nuts used in various places, but it flows oh so much better.

thanks alot buddy thats pretty useful i think im just gonna take it to the dealer if i can't find what i need today locally, cuz this is my daily driver and i don't wanna wait for shipping but i'll keep that site for sure
yah it ended up being a PITA, needed a double flanging tool to do it after trying many things including soddering it together i took it to a shop (called 4 and they couldnt do it) finally one had a 2000 dollar machine to flange the ends of the 3/18ths line and connect them, i brought them the lines and still paid them 110$ just for the labor what a PITA, never throw stuff on ur brake hard lines if ur interior is stripped they will break. it was a lesson learned any way
