As some know, it's the first time I change brakes on my V50 and yesterday I managed to change the front rotors and pads.

Next up is changing the rear caliper (due to a broken bleeder). I managed to figure out how to remove the parking brake cable and also managed to loosen the brake line nut. But here is a rookie question... how do I remove the brake line from the caliper? It seems the nut is stuck to the line so when you turn the nut, the brake line gets twisted along with it. Do I really need to remove the caliper and turn it instead, to remove the line :confused:

I'm sure it's a very simple procedure but would really appreciate if someone could enlighten me.

yeah that nut is attached to the brake line, you should take the calliper off then remove the calliper from the line. also if you want to go alittle further down the breakline and remove it from the car itself.
