Working With Rusty Brake Lines

In particular this video is about removing wheel cylinders with rusty brake lines. Sometimes the brake line will rust to the inside of the nut. When this happens, if you try and remove the brake line, it can damage it and cause a leak.

The method in this video shows you how to deal with this issue.

**Note** this method is really only to get you out of a jam. Rusty brake lines should be replaced. If not, they could suddenly fail causing a loss of brake pressure.
