Rear brake lines

I need to replace rear brake line, from the mixing valve to the rubber hose. Can't figure out how steel line detaches where it meets the rubber line at a bracket attach to the frame. The rubber line goes from there to a junction attach to the axle.

Attached picture

Please help I feel stranded......

There should be a clip that slides out the top... Yours looks rusted together.

A few FACTS:
Rectangle headlights ARE kinda cool.
YJ does NOT stand for "Yuppie Jeep".
Jeeps should only have TWO doors.
You should ALWAYS wave at other JEEP drivers.

That thing is rusted to crap. Try pb blaster and maybe a little heat. There's a nut right before the metal bracket you need to bust free. Yours is just so rusted you can't see the nut on the hard line anymore. You might have to just cut it off and rent a brake line flare tool from an auto part store and put some new line and fittings on.

Mellow yellow is right about the clip it just slides up. The clip just secures the lines. Try and break the nut free before you take that off if you can. use a pair of vice grips and grab the little nut and give it a quick jerk up in the loosening direction. You might have to soak that sucker in some pb blaster for a few days. Well good luck.

In the first picture you can just make out the clip that holds the line in place. Don't pull that off until you have the line loose.

Get youself some good flare nut wrenches, But it maybe to gone for that and a couple Vice-Grips maybe the way to go.

good luck.
