Default 1999 Deville Brake tubing

I have posted this in the wrong forum section but maybe someone here has some answers.

My Deville has a leak in a brake tube about 15 inches in front of the left rear wheel.

Does anyone know the actual length of tubing needed to reach from the ABS actuator to the connection at the rear of the car?

Is this tube one piece? I have seen diagrams that seem to suggest that there is a connection somewhere in the middle of the tube. If there is, it would surely make the project a lot easier.

Any suggestions on how to replace this tube without dissecting the car completely.

Many thanks for any and all help,

Lyle

It's long and a PITA to replace. You will also need flaring tool kit (s) Iso or bubble flare and also double flare if your try to piece it. There are dual kits. You can buy 1 piece roll of tubing from dealer form the front to ABS then roll it out to proportioning valve. Brake lines and fuel lines run together. It is absolutely terrible to do with car on 3 ton jack stands. You really need car higher off the ground. Everything is metric also. Good Luck
