I have a 1986 Saab Turbo. Their is a small rust through spot just under the driver door. It's basically under the spot where you jack up the car, under the drivers side door.

Through that small hole, all my brake fluid comes through. So there must be a leak between the front and back brake line? The problem is that I can't access the brake line or find any video tutorials.

Does anyone know how to replace the brake lines on this car?

Thanks

The lines are accessible with the carpet and door sill removed.

In some of the pictures half way down you can see them. They come through the firewall on the left side, run down the door sill and then down to the floor.
They end up exiting through the floor above the rear axle.

That is an 88, but I assume the earlier system on an 86 is very similar.

Chances are good you aren't going to like what you find under there if you already have a rust hole and likely a rusted out brakeline.

i want to say on 85 they do the same thing. i know they disapear from the front of the car, and then they go out, underneath the back seat bottom through a couple grommets, where there then are fittings to the hard-lines leading to the rear calipers.
