Alright guys, I just bought a prebent set of lines right from OEM. I was so excited to get them on... I got the passenger side snaked all the way through and hooked up to the wheel but when I went to hook up the side to the ABS unit the fitting on the end is incorrect. The threads are more coarse than the fitting that suppose to be in there.. Does anyone know the size of the threads (more coarse) that are on this hose? I am trying to get a bubble flare to bubble flare adaptor because I don't have a bubble flare tool (100.00 at Napa).. The part # to the hose I received is 10335974. The local GM dealer told me this was the only one available..

Here is a diagrahm of what I have.. (Part 39)

you might find someone that does hydraulic hoses in the area, napa guy probably knows someone. They might be able to take pitty on you and help. Do you have the old line or is it still connected to the car?

OTC's bubble flare kit is $25, Ridgid's is $40. Your parts guy is an a**hole.

The only way it is worthwhile to buy anything at NAPA is if you have a commercial account...otherwise their prices are 1.5 - 2x the cost at Advance, Auto Zone, or O'Reilly.

Case in point...I went in to look at AC Manifold Gauges. Brass gauges were "on sale" for $130 or $140. Normal price at Advance was $89.99. Aluminum gauges were $199. I went online to Tooltopia and got a gauge set that was made in the USA with a can tap and a case for $94.

About five or six years ago, I bought a fuel pressure gauge from NAPA for $49. I checked online when I got back to our hotel and Advance was selling the exact same thing for $29.

If you're in a pinch, OTC 6502 is a "Master Brake Flaring Tool Kit". I was able to pick it up from O'Reilly a few weeks ago when I had a similar issue (wife's Saturn uses nothing but bubble flares) the same day for $95.99, which is cheaper than a lot of places online. I just had to call them to order it and they got it from their local warehouse later the same morning.

The AGS brake lines from Advance, etc. are pretty easy to bend with your bare hands - you could go that route and bend up your own brake lines and buy the master flaring tool for about the same money it would cost to buy a couple of lines from the dealer.

I had to replace a line on the RR of my wife's Saturn the other week when I stripped the nut off it...lesson learned; GM discontinued the lines already on a 2003 model year car, only two dealerships in the country had any, and it would take about a week to get one and about $50. I bought the flaring tool, bent up my own line and put it in without any issues. When I went to bleed the lines, I also stripped out another like from the master cylinder to the BPMV...out came the flaring tool and brake line from the parts store is cheap. It has already paid for itself within two weeks of me having it. Smile

I would return the lines and invest in a quality flaring tool and some brake line. Smile If they try to tell you there's a restocking fee, just tell them they ordered the wrong ones since they don't fit.
