Re: brake lines ?

I assume your referring to the vertical lines off your front calipers?
If so, its possible someone didnt tighten the banjo fitting with the brake line pointing up and slightly inwards, they *will* go on pointing at the tires. If this is the case, just loosen the banjo bolt & reposition the line so it wont hit.

I know, i had my calipers off a dozen times the last 3 weeks [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: brake lines ?

Well there's really no reason to delete your original post because it might help somebody in the future, but here's something else to be very careful about. One time during a brake job I got in a hurry and accidently reinstalled one of my calipers with a twist in the brake line. Needless to say, that is not a good thing and could quite possibly have ripped off if I had turned full lock and drooped the suspension at the same time!
