blindguy74 Posted June 16, 2018 Share Posted June 16, 2018 (edited) Not busted...corodded through.. On vacation from Indiana to Fort Walton Beach 05 lgt wagon...I drove the whole way pretty much...let wife drive last couple hrs. We get into Pensacola to pick up her brother and she says the brakes felt bad. Peddle went to floor..limped to a gas station..put fluid in it and it basically pumped out with pressing the peddle.. Theirs still barely a little brake..and the estop(can I drift it everywhere)...J/K. Take it to a tire and lube place... Calls me tells me it's corroded...hard to get to..in a tiny spot or something..they can't do it/make brake lines. I was hoping it was just the damn rubber line to the caliper... So now I have to wait til Monday to take it to another place to have them look at it and see if they can get into it and hopefully Fab a new partial line etc.. Tire and lube guy said it looks like a big pain in the ass to get to etc..possibly 5-6 hrs...100$ in labor..I'm screwed out of maybe 600$ish bucks possibly.. Called another place..he talked like it'd probably be cheaper but he's further away.. Waiting til Monday basically to take somewhere else close to the original tire and lube place I went to... should I take it to the stealership near here..? I even considered shipping the car home even and getting a rental...which would cost morre ultimately.. What say u..opinions...etc..
