Chevy Venture brake line leaking?

When a brake line is leaking on the Chevy Venture the brake line should be replaced as soon as possible.

How Do you unlock A locked Passenger side rear brake In a 95 gti?

Ok so i figured this one out on my own. Remove the rear tire that the brake is locked up on, if the hand brake is on, lower the lever in the car. locate the e-brake wire on the rear of the disk brake/caliper. This should be behind the rotor and caliber and is identifible by the fact that it is not a hydraulic line. You should see that it is held in place by a bracket with tension on it, hence why the brake is "locked" remove the bracket holding in the brake line in place {not the hydraulic line!!} Once the bracket is removed simple pull out the e-brake line with a pair of pliers, Shazam! the brake should release. If not a few light taps with a hammer should help. Save the bracket for the e-brake as you will need it if you ever decide to fix it. This is a temporay fix with no real long term affects to your braking system, Except the fact that you will only have one E brake working.

How do you replace brake lines for a Honda accord?

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
