2000 Pontiac Grand Prix hard line replacement cost? Sign In

Hello, I'm trying to find what a reasonable price is to replace any of the hard lines on my car. A retired mechanic told me he would do it for $500, and that was with me supplying the lines, unions, union bolts and brake fluid. I feel like he really high-balled me. Is that reasonable.

Some understanding needed for this. Guess is you have some rusted lines - common problem in places that salt roads.


Been at this since Custer lost at Little Big Horn - it's all labor as parts and brake fluid is nothing really. If you needed that many hard to do ones the vehicle itself is in question for its rust condition and so are fuel and evap lines all just as vulnerable.


You asked so you probably have a problem right now. Let the mechanic/tech look at it and decide what sections are lousy and what can be kept.


Just saying ONE price doesn't add up to me. Did you ask to replace every single line in the whole brake system? Did this person even look at it yet?


Start there. Not with how much it could/should cost. (edited in -- you know if just lines you may find bleeders snap off of calipers and or wheel cylinders too just adding to the headache of the job and now some parts costs)
