Did it break from age or did you hit something? Is the hard line or rubber hose section damaged? You can purchase the rubber section from any auto parts store, the hard line, best to visit a brake shop in your area. Don't continue to drive without rear brakes, but just enough to get it to a mechanic.

it broke from age and its the rubber line that that came apart at the connection where it feed to a hard line in this bracket.the other end of the rubber line doesnt have a end on it that you can put a wrench on it to remove it??? is it a special line?also when this broke i am loosing brake fluid for my fronts as well but i only found the one leak what might that be ?

the one end that broke off had a clamp on it and it was hooked to the steel line in this bracket the steel is still there.

If it is the rubber line, you can replace, they come with the metal fittings. Bought at any auto part store. Look on www.rockauto.com and search under your truck for brake hose. You will need to bleed the system after installing and adding new fluid.

okay.is there a special way of removing it it has a different kind of end on it?its smooth and doesnt look like you can get a line wrench on it.also does the front brakes run on the same line because i have lost brake fluid in the front res?thankyou
