How do you remove the rear brake line hoses?
 
I need to remove the rear brake line hoses from their metal guide brackets. There is one one on the back of each hub and others before that. The ABS lines are also on these brackets. There is an open slot at the bottom of the bracket, so maybe I can gently twist or tap the metal part of the hose out? Does anyone know how to do this without causing damage? I need to replace both of the rear brake backing plates as the right side is rusted to bits. and the left side is not far behind. I love the salt and brine that my highway and street departments put on the road!

Does this video help with replacing the dust covers? 2008 Opel Astra but not sure the rear disc brakes are the same.

Good video of replacing this component though, all of us Astra owners should get together and have a combined group session on replacing these. Just about every car needs it to be done, kind of like the rear door wiring on the 5 doors. Wow, I cannot get the picture of the brake line mount to upload.

Public library might have subscription to AllData. You might need to look at that on a terminal at the library.

How did you manage to upload the two images? Every cellphone and digital camera creates large multi megabyte image files - too large to upload as a thumbnail. Restrictions limit image file size to 150kb. Use your favorite image software to resize snapshots to less than a megabyte, preferably in jpeg and then try uploading.

The one image just did not want to load. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. I have little understnding of file sizes, megabytes orimage software. I just want stuff to work. To tell you the truth, I neither have the time, training or inclination to do these things. As for my cell phone, I mostly just send and receive calls. Not a big tech guy, really.
