As my left hand rear brake hose burst last night I'm going to have to spend part of today replacing it.

I know there is a correct sequence for bleeding brakes but I can't remember it. Can someone enlighten me please.

Before you do, has your car had the rear brake hoses changed under warranty? BA/BF had rear brake hose issues and are to be replaced under Ford warranty.
If I were you, I would ring your local Ford dealer and ask if your vehicle has had it done.
The hoses aren't dear but at least the delaer can do it for you NO CHARGE. :)

Funny you should mention that. A few years ago, when it was still under warranty I took it to Ford because of that recall. They told me it was only the sedans the wagons were ok. I'm guessing they bullsh**ted to me. :x Too late now I can't drive it over there anyway, I was lucky to get it home

Im sure its furthest first to closest last, as confirmed by attachment for a E-Series but should be the same nonetheless

ABS is on the left side of the car. Looking at the brake lines, the right rear is feed from the left rear making it the furthest

it dont really matter on a ba

nly the e series where the abs was in front of the passenger wheel area

even then it really dont make that much a difference as the front lines are 2 circuits

and the rear is 1

All done for now, changed both rear hoses. Cost $95 trade. I'll be doing the front 2 in a couple of weeks
