I have a leak in 1 of my rear hard brake lines, it's leaking near the splitter.
Does anyone have any idea what size lines and lengths I need? Also, where can i buy a new splitter?
All information appreciated.

You cant get the splitter at napa it tried this weekend but i had to order it from the dealership ($45). The brake line is 3/16" and you can get that at napa and you will need 2 fittings and a tubing flarer.

Help! broke off Splitter from Rear

As i was trying to loosen the passenger side rear hard brake line, I broke the Splitter from the rear. The Tab broke off.
My question is how can I get the hard brake line off if the tab is not attached to anything?
I'm sure I'm not the only one who has broke it off.
All help is seriously appreciated.

I meant the splitter broke from the tab thats bolted to the rear. The splitter just swings now.
I was able to remove 1 brake line, But the drivers side is rusted in the splitter.
I also just found out that the rubber line is built into the splitter, Another interesting surprise.
Now i have to price the splitter from the dealer. This is getting to be a small money pit. :banghead:
