    Re: No brake fluid, 97 DeVille

    Yep, we're gonna get probably 30-50ft of line (Thankfully my dad knows how to work on brakes! ) and go ahead and replace them all, this way they'll all be on the same mileage as each other. (And considering how many have to be replaced already..)

    Quick question: Where can I buy the fittings and line together?

    Most auto parts stores will have everything you need.

    Awesome. Going to hopefully get everything this Friday, and do everything this very-next weekend.

    Don't forget you will also need a brake line double flare tool and a bending tool.

    Already have the bending tool, just need the flare tool!

    Also, are these the right fittings?

    Well, I guess I'll have to trust that AutoZone says "It fits!"

    I don't believe those fittings are correct. You'll need metric thread fittings - those appear to be standard. Flares are bubble style. Line is 3/16". Buy your line in 25ft coils and cut/bend/flare your lines as needed rather than trying to piece them together with smaller length stock and union fittings.

    Wow - do you live near the coast? My 98 looks brand-new compared to yours!

    Does Pittsburgh-area count as "near the coast"?

    The lines from the MC to the Bosch ABS unit look to be 1/4" but are actually 6mm. One of mine "holed" yesterday.
