YJ Brake line bracket removal

Hi all,

In process of removing the brake lines on my YJ due to rot and the fact I'm lifting it at the same time.

Hard Lines are all disconnected and out and I'm left with what's left of my soft lines locked into a metal bracket attached to the frame with what appears to be a TORX head. any idea what size?

It ain't coming out and its in an impossible location to get a full size ratchet with a Torx head on it plus its good and stuck.

If I cut most of it off (started doing that with a dremel) and leave part of the bracket where do you install or hold the new flexible line so it doesn't rub on the tire or get caught in anything.

Any pictures?

Thanks in advance

You are talking about the front? You can reach down from the top with a really long set of extensions to get at the tox screw.

Or. The lines are held in with just a little flat spring clip. If you cut the hard side of the line and get the clip off you can leave the bracket alone and re use it.

Or. You can ignore the brackets and put the new ones in a more accessable place, like on the side of the frame or anywhere else close to the wheel center.

Thanks man. Appreciate the guidance. I think I'll go with option 3 if I can as I hate where they are now and that screw is tough to get at.
