Rear brake pad change line removal necessary?
I'm running into an issue when trying to remove the top rear brake caliper bolt on a 2008 Jeep Compass. The brake line going into the caliper is in the way when trying to back out the top bolt. I have tried in vain to wiggle the bolt past the bottom brass fitting in the line but still can't get the bolt out.
Any suggestions would be welcome. If it comes down to having to remove the line what should I do to minimize brake fluid loss? Should I clamp the line or let it run & bleed it after? Or both?
When bleeding, as it may be a one man job, does anyone recommend getting a set of speed bleeders?
Thanks in advance!
