    Brake Line questions

    Hey I'm really new to this so im sorry if im asking stupid questions.. it's for an '02 wrx sedan if it means anything.

    this morning i noticed a puddle underneath my car, i lifted it up and saw that the brake line (front passenger) was leaking. I disconnected it and was gonna take it out (It's the hard line that goes into the bay, not the flexible line.) Then i ended up just retightening the line and i dont think it's leaking anymore? im gonna check it obviously after i bleed it.

    my question is when i bleed the lines is this the right order? passenger front, driver rear, driver front, passenger rear. also is there a simple way to disconnect the whole hard line and get it out incase that's what i need to replace?

    Thanks for any help,
    sorry if i posted in the wrong place and i always appreciate corrections since im learning

    Bleed order is correct. Don't know about line sorry.

    The front passenger is probably the easiest to take out, if necessary, since the area around the downpipe will give you a bit more access than most places. That being said, it's not going to be easy, and might be something best left to the dealer. I haven't heard of the hard lines failing on our cars though.
