Do you have any instructions?
Ok, give me just a moment and let me see what I can find out.
These are the instructions I have,
So you are trying to disconnect the hydraulic line?
You answered that before I asked it. One second.
Do you have a camera? If not, do you have a dollar store near by? They sell cellphones for $10 sometimes with both cameras and video recorders.
I would like to see that line.
So the hydraulic line doesn't just unscrew?
At 2:03 you can see where the line unscrews. Is that it, does it not uncrew or something?
Ok, now I understand. Use a flare nut wrench.
One like this and soak it first with some penetrating fluid. http://cds.a9t2h4q7.hwcdn.net/main/items/media/DANAH001/ProductLarge/MF29203.jpg
No, the flare nut wrench is so you don't strip the head/flats of the line nut fitting. It fits around the line so you can grab the nut from 5 sides, not just 2 sides like when using an open end wrench. Like this, http://mgaguru.com/mgtech/tools/pics/fnw3.jpg
Autozone has a lot, sears, etc. http://www.autozone.com/wrenches-pliers-and-cutters/wrench?filterByKeyWord=flare+nut+wrench&fromString=search
A 1992 should be metric so remember not to but sae, you need metric. I am guessing around 10mm. You could measure using open end wrenches, whatever fit with open end is the same in flare wrench size.
Or, if you want to just replace the entire line cause maybe it's rusted or whatever, you could just cut if off using a hacksaw or tubing cutter, close to the slave cylinder and then put on a 6 point deep socket or a 6 point closed end wrench and crack it loose and remove it that way.
or s crows foot if you have no room, like this http://www.panther-pro.co.uk/toptul/images/source/AEAV.jpg
Ok, if that flare wrench works, don't forget to rate me well, so I get credit and if it don't work, let me know.
You are welcome.
Did the flare wrench work?
