brake hose failure, question on replacing the clutch line
I experienced a failure Saturday on the front brakes of my 01 LT. It was the brake hose that goes from the front right caliper up about 6" to a T where the front left caliper hard line connects then up into the front suspension area another 12". It blew out just above where the rubber hose leaves the T block . I had been noticing the lever wasn't hard when I would first pull it, so I attempted to bleed any air out of the system and then noticed I was able to pull the lever all the way which I knew was wrong. Then all of a sudden I heard the hose go. Fortunately it happened in the driveway.
I have decided to go with SS Braided and replace all the hoses since they are all 7 years old as well as the clutch line. I found them (Spiegler) for a good price at Eurotechmotorsports.com. The front/rear hoses with crush washers $155 S-BM0140 (discount due to overstock), the clutch hose was regular price $67 S-BM0153.
My question is, I'm going to replace the clutch hose from the clutch lever to the clutch but I haven't so far been able to get the right spot open where the hose attaches to the clutch. What panel/parts do I need to remove to access this hose. anyone got pictures?
