If anyone can answer this, I'd surely appreciate you. I need to know if I can block one of my rear brake lines temporarily till I can replace both of them completely ? My concern is if the ABS system will operate without problems.. I'm aware of the safety aspect but I have to be in Chicago Thursday and can't afford new brake lines till I get my VA pension check on the 1st of July. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks. EdBo
Went ahead and Blocked both rear lines and don't seem to have any adverse effects to the ABS system. I can tell its obviously missing the rear brakes on a hard fast stop but using the parking brake helps if necessary. At least I won't be putting a quart of brake fluid on the roads this week. Don't no one worry I'll be careful and keep a lot of distance for safeties sake. It will have new lines thru out when my pension check shows up on the 1st. Peace Eddie
I was leaving the parking lot at work last year and my pedal went to the floor because my rusted rear lines popped. Crimped the rear line off with a vise grip which gave me the fronts back. My drive home is pretty brake friendly but I can't believe I made it all the way home in rush hour without having to use the brakes. Just downshifting, driving smoothly, and leaving room in front.
