REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
The use of Mazda special brake line wrench 49-0259-770B will make the disconnecting and connecting of the brake line fittings an easy task.
- Loosen the brake line flare nut using the proper tool and remove the brake hose. If you are disconnecting a flexible hose, use a back-up wrench to prevent the hose from twisting. Drain the brake fluid into a small waste container and keep the fluid away from painted surfaces. Brake fluid makes fantastic paint remover!
- Inspect the brake hose for cracks, swelling and signs of leakage (weeping) or deterioration. Replace the hose if is no longer fit for service. Check the flare nut and threaded connections for damage.
- Connect the brake hose and tighten the flare fittings properly. Make the hose is connected so that it is not allowed to contact any moving parts.
- Bleed the system as described below and run the tip of your finger all the way around the connection to ensure a tight fit.
