I would have to try to find my receipt to see if they stated a specific reason, at the time the GM dealership told me that front and rear brakes were very bad with not much left. They said the front brakes were worse so I had those done.
Not sure if I have the receipt here, the car is in the shop for transmission work and it may be in the glovebox.
Thank-you so much! I just wasn't sure if the brakes had to be done in order to be able to fix the brake line. Apparently only 1 is leaking but should probably replace both. Thanks for telling me I should hear noises, not sure if the car has squealers but for sure thought I should hear something, especially since they said they were so bad.
I agree if there is no noise I'd leave it alone, I'd also only replace the leaking brake line, no reason to replace working parts. Let me know how it goes or if you have any questions, thanks.
I took the car and the mechanic brought me in to look at the brake lines when it was up on the hoist. One looked very very rusty and the other one wasn't quite as bad but bad enough. I had them both replaced and it came to $225.00. Thank-you once again for your help. :)
