Pontiac Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Are you referring to the steel brake lines or the flexible hose brake lines?
All the brake lines in the vehicle or just the fronts or just the rears?
Ok, first, there isnt a set labor hour charge for running brake lines as they have to be custom run and bent.
As far as parts you will be looking at between $100-150 for the steel brake lines and fittings needed.
Labor will range from a low end of 4 hours to high end of 8 hours, depending upon the skill level of the technician and if they are going to pull out the old lines thru the frame and run the new ones thru the frame the same way. Some shops will leave the bulk of the old lines in place and run the new ones beside the old ones, or run along the inner frame rail and secure to it. This is usually the least expensive alternative as it is the quickest route with least obstacles and least amount of bend work.
Goodwrench doesnt have a national labor rate. Each Goodwrench outlet sets their own hourly labor rates that they will charge, based upon their overhead costs.
Goodwrench uses the same labor guides as other shops to set how many labor hours to charge for a repair. As I previously stated, the labor guides do not give a set labor hour charge for replacing the steel brake lines. This is because it is CUSTOM work on every vehicle as the lines have to be custom bent and run. You will be charged by the hour for how long it takes to custom run the brake lines.
