Re: 2001 V70XC - Brake line and Cliper Service

Thank you. Mityvac method was a success. No visible fluid leak. Here is the junction after the surgery, and now in recovery -- test drive next.

Re: 2001 V70XC - Brake line and Cliper Service

I'm preparing to bleed brakes today, and looking for clarity as there are conflicting info on which wheel is first. VIDA says to begin with wheel closest to the master cylinder, i.e., US driver's front-wheel a.k.a. left front-wheel, where experienced and popular brake bleed says to begin with the fa...

Re: 2001 V70XC - Brake line and Cliper Service

Good to know. Annoying slippery, without a shop towel it is impossible to turn the flare nut connecting to flex hose -- dripping stopped as it tightened. Close to 80-100ml dripped out at each bubble. The brake line is now assembled down to front wheel caliper. The reservoir is now close to 200ml emp...

Re: 2001 V70XC - Brake line and Cliper Service

Thanks! Someone at MVS once quoted Vince Lombardi "Winners never quit and quitters never win". Cutting along the metal nut on flex hose should work fine even if the flare gets little brushes. In my several attempts to use flare wrench the junction bracket moved, copper line twisted etc. But found th...

Remote Starter and Climate Control

Would this winter be made easy for our 1997 850 n/a driver if it has a remote starter with climate control switch? It is a without ECC, but heating and cooling works great. The originally installed Pursuit aftermarket alarm system was useful but radio frequency is not up to snuff. Manual locking and...

Awesome!
Removed the brake pedal - steering jig, and fluid drips out. Both sides needed surgical procedure and line flare to restore -- flex line, caliper, and brake pads.

Re: 2001 V70XC - Brake line and Cliper Service

Leaving the brake pedal depressed for now so I can complete the driver's side. Then remove the stick and let both drip a little. I had to cut off the end and make new bubble flare using NEIKO tool kit -- thumb hurts. Now counting on new ATE flex hose to make a tight seal. Woking on tube bending skill.

Re: 2001 V70XC - Brake line and Cliper Service

Helpful!
It took forever to straighten up the hard line. After few practices, this is progress: I'm assuming dirt entered the line will clear during the bleed steps, yes? Or use a syringe to drain and clear before connecting flex hose?

Removed using cut off tool. Next step repair parts and tools. HFT for tools. Who may have the flare nut?

Re: 2001 V70XC - Brake line and Cliper Service

The fluid drip prevention trick is proven -- thank you.
But, surgically removing and bubble flaring looks inevitable now.
