How much it cost to repair the front brake hoses on a 1995 Cadillac DeVille?

December 25th, 2010 · No Comments

- I replaced hundreds of these in my old career and I didn’t find it to be a difficult job if all went well. The cost to replace the hoses with parts and labour was usually around 150-200 bucks. The labour was usually around 1.2-1.5 hours, so go from there. I will say that if you are not comfortable doing mechanical things, brakes are not the learning ground for you to do this. There is always a chance of breaking something in here as these parts are not exactly the strongest. There is also a lot of other expensive components around this area. You have to have a sure hand and be sure things are put together properly so as to avoid a catastrophic failure. You have to route the new ones in and bleed the brakes properly as all these have ABS which makes bleeding a lot more troublesome. I do advise you to take it in to a dealer!

- Parts probably cost about $40.00 on most cars but seeing it’s a cadillac it will probably cost more due to the name and if you know what you are doing it’s a simple job, probably in the shop they will charge you an hour worth of labor on top of the price of the parts.
