I'm in the middle of trying to replace my front brake lines and I've run into a bit of a snag. There's this strange axle-mounted bracket that my front lines run through that I haven't seen on any of the walk-throughs or directions I've read. What do I do with this? I can't feed my new brakeline through it (nor do I want to, it just looks like it would limit travel and cause a mess of problems), and I can't remove it. I'm also having a bear of a time trying to remove the factory brake line from it.
Should I just cut my factory line and yank it through, and just forget the bracket is there? My ABS cable is also attached at this point, but just with some push pins.
I figured I would just route the new line through the same area without putting it in the bracket, and remove the ABS line from it as well and zip tie it to the new brake line. Unless anyone else has a better idea that has seen this before.
