Hello to all my fellow Caddy Owners. Im new to the site and glad to see there are so many members available to help each other with these nice cars. I just purchased a 2000 Eldorodo, The car is in mint shape for the year and having 100k miles on it. Upon buying it from an old coworker he had told me from the beginning it needs a brake line replaced in the front. He had one rust out in the back and got around to replacing it. After getting it changed he went to bleed the system and one of the front lines blew. I got the car up on stands and found fluid underneath the drivers side of the front end. I removed the tire and found the leak is behind the fender well and about impossible to see. They sure do pack the engine and all its components into these chasis! I tried finding a brake line diagram so possibly I can just run new lines leaving the old since I cant see them nor get to them. I haven't spent a lot of time yet on it but got discouraged with what I see already. The most I could find was a quick You Tube Video where the guy had the motor and part of the front end suspension off of the car. It looked as though the lines are tucked in around the motor and along the front frame rail.
If anyone has any tips or suggestions I would appreciate it. The sooner I get the line fixed the sooner I can be on the road and get to enjoy this car.
