How to: Replacing brake line?

Advice needed:I'm replacing the hard line on the front of my 1997 NAS D90. Anything special I need to know!? She's a little pinched... Thanks in advance for the advice!

Nothing special, just use flare nut wrenches to remove the line. Also might be a good time to bleed the brakes with fresh fluid.

Make sure you have the correct line before you remove the old one. I thought these were NLA.

If you're replacing the line just cut it and use a socket to remove the flare nuts.
I use a pair of pliers like these for making tight bends.

+1 on this. Definitely cut the line and use a socket to get the nuts off. Will save you a lot of hurt vs rounding the nut with a wrench.
