BRAKE LINE

What's happening to cause my resevior feed line to come loose from the master cyclinder. It's just the little plastic 90 degree elbow that came loose, and it only came about half way out. It was; however, leaking and drained about half my brake fluid from the resevior. It just snapped back in place and so far I've had no further troubles with it. But, it was causing the red "BRAKE" light on the dash to come on intermittently. Any ideas?

Vibration? Been driving on any bad surfaces lately?

Yeah, Arkansas' roads! No seriously, most of my daily driving is on a fairly new interstate highway and the rest is in town. So if that were the only cause, it should have come loose before now.

If you're really that worried about it, I'd go to the local parts store and pick up some rubber high pressure line and clamp it down [Image: biggrin.gif]

It can't be clamped. The plastic elbow snaps directly into the end of the master cylinder. Also, after further evaluation, I think it is actually a fluid return line; due to its position.
