97 Escort Wagon and blown rear brake line
I just bought this 97 Escort Wagon today as a vehicle to transport my tools around town to local jobs. It wasn't even in my name for more than 4 hrs when returning from a job I came to an intersection hit the brakes and the pedal lost pressure and straight to the floor. I looked underneath the car in the rear where there was a puddle forming and the line burst right around where it comes up from the rear axle and continues along towards the gas tank.
Has anyone replaced the rear lines on this car? Is it a straight forward job? I have redone the rear lines on an Aerostar with nothing complicated underneath, but from looking under the car it looks like it might be a little more work.
