good luck on the fix!
Well, the drivers side was easy as pie to replace. All that brake fluid made it easy to tear everything apart. The passenger side, however, was a small horror story.
Both the fuel line and the bleeder valve ended up being rounded off. So I had to replace the brake line from the wheel cylinder to the axle (not terribly hard, but a setback nevertheless).
Then I finally got everything back together and bled the brakes and yanked the Ebrake. ROCK SOLID!!
Then I went for a test drive. Now I have full pedal again and no brake light!
All in all, I've ended up replacing both wheel cylinders, rear brake shoes, all the hardware, the axle to wheel cylinder brake line on the passenger side, and now I have clean, fresh, clear brake fluid running through the whole brake system!
Next, it's time to replace the window that I busted out two weeks ago (soon as I find a part....)
