If it is a hose, that runs from a hardline to a caliper or from a hard line to the hardline located on the axle, then you simply remove the old one, using a line wrench, install the new one, and bleed the brakes. To bleed the brakes, you start with the wheel farthest from the master cylinder, but if you only replaced one hose, then only bleed that one. If you must replace a line, then remove that line, either have someone or make up a new line yourself, install the new line, and bleed the brakes.

It is quite simple to change the brake light switch on your 1998 Chevy S 10 pickup truck. The brake light switch simply plugs in and out.
