Do you intend to drive it like that? or are you wanted to do this only while you replace the line?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No i need to be able to replace the line without fluid dripping all over the place the car is in my garage now.

Hello
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

OK. You could cut the line an inch or so past the flare nut and crimp it if it's not badly corroded. This will not hold pressure. The alternative would be to purchase a plug from napa.

The only diagram I have of the ABS module doesn't specify which line goes where. are you able to follow the line from the wheel to the module? Here is one of the plugs

No the unit is buried underneath the battery tray but I guess we will have to remove all of that to get to it.
Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

Yes. You will have to remove the battery and battery tray. I will give you the service procedure. One minute.

Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

chances are if the right line rotten out, the left side is not far behind. You might want to consider doing both sides, unless of course the left side appears to be in good condition.

I just realized that this is still open. Do you still need assistance? If not please remember to rate the service. If you still need help, please let me know so I can assist you to the best of my ability. thank you.
