depends on the shop and everyone should have a shop manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual(wiring diagrams and more detailed info) available in the reference section for FREE....make copies of the right sections, and fix it like a PRO!! good luck Dave :)
Why would you want to replace all the brake lines? You can flush the entire system and install fresh DOT3 brake fluid. I can see no reason to replace all the brake lines. Why are you doing this? Unless your brake lines are rotted out or someone has cut them... there is no reason to replace all four lines.
bad news ford isn't showing the steel lines in parts book any more 09-14-2009.
For the car with such age it can be anything. I would start from main brake lines. If the lines are fine, check calipers and rear brake cylinders for leaks. If you find any leak it's easier to replace a part, then trying to fix it.
Contaminated brake fluid.Rusted, rotted brake lines.
Good time to replace all the brake fluid. Remove the brake lines from the Master Cylinder and pump the master cylinder dry. Add fresh brake fluid from an unopened can and bleed the master cylinder. Reinstall the brake lines and then bleed all brake lines until you see clean fluid. Keep adding fluid to the Master Cylinder until you are done.Good time to replace all the brake fluid.

It would be more cost effective to replace the brake caliper. If you repair the brake caliper it will cost you more in the long run.
You probably have a warped brake rotor. New rotors are fairly inexpensive, I would replace both front rotors and brake pads while your in there. The calipers and sliders along with the brake hoses and lines need to be examined also.
The tools you would need to replace front brake pads are, a wrenche (size varies depending on vehicle type), a clamp tool, and brake pads.
You have air in your brake lines. Have the brakes bled.
your mechanic would have to install new brake lines.
I would try bleeding the brake lines first to make sure there is no air in the lines. Could be the brake booster (if applicable) or even the master cylinder. If your car has a brake booster maybe check the vacuum line on it first.
you either have a bad master cylinder or you need to replace your brake pads if you hear a lot of squealing when you push down on the brake peddle in most cases that means you need to replace them unless you did recently then in most cases I would recommend bleeding the brakes there could be some air bubbles that are preventing proper pressure in your brake lines
When replacing brake lines, wheel cylinders or calipers air will get into the lines because they were taken apart. Usually air gets into the lines before you work on it because the master cylinder got too low on brake fluid letting air into the lines. Also a bad seal on a caliper piston and a brake wheel cylinder will allow air into the lines.
This is a question to ask the mechanic, there is no way I can come up with a price without knowing how much of the brake lines are being replaced. I would suggest however if you want to save money is to buy the brake lines yourself. in the correct size and bring ti all to the mechanic
Air in the brake lines would be my first guess.
Bleed em again. Then replace the brake lines. Which would involve more bleeding.
The entire brake can be difficult but the brake pads are easy. I would trust a mechanic to do the entire brake at your local garage.
There would be break fluid OUTSIDE of the lines and reservoir
In CT USA, a garage would charge 1 hour labor to replace the rear brake pads on that Mountaineer.
Your question needs some clarification. If you meant to say how do you replace the front/rear flexible brake hoses (assuming you have rear disc) or how do you replace all of the brake lines on my Accord that would greatly help direct a more direct response. You should have specific hand tool before changing your brake lines, and that is a flare nut wrench. I have a 10mm and 12mm flare nut wrench that works well. This wrench if thicker than a standard wrench and one side is approximately 75% closed (like a box end wrench) to allow for more contact area and reduce stripping the flare nut. There are also clips that hold the line to a bracket where the 'hard' & 'flexible' lines connect. Leave this in-place until you have loosened the connector (and install the clip) before you tighten the connector
how would remove brake light switch and replace on an 88 gmc
NEED BRAKE INSPECTION POSSIBLY NEW BRAKE PADS, Check brake fluid imediately. had a similar problem on a 1990 camry. brake fluid level was slightly low. when temperature outside would drop, applying brakes would lower level and brake light would come on. possibly caused by a small leak in brake line. filling brake fluid would fix, but would reappear a couple of months later. Have brake lines checked for leak.
It is important to know the cost of replace the parts of a car while owning it. The average cost to replace brake pads and rotors to a 1992 Buick LeSabre as a kit would be about $300.
It would be best to replace them with new ones.
Typically, that comes from having air in the lines.
