Well I thought getting the half dozen Motorcraft preformed brake tubes from Rock Auto for this 2004 Expedition seemed to be a great idea initially at the time because the 2 lines from the master had braided stainless steel sections but only received one of the 6 ordered tubes September 1st and had to do an on line report saying the other 5 lines were missing from the box.
Customer took his vehicle back to his home with a good brake pedal with only functioning front brakes with the original ABS TCS module unplugged and blown brake rear brake lines bypassed at the HCU. The harness connector was plugged into the used salvage yard ABS module assembly I did the programmable module installation on with the Cyst and surprised to find out that the ABS light did not come on or the Check Advance Trak message on his way home . Pretty surprised.
I got 3 more of the lines delivered on the 12th and again had to make a online report that I was still missing two lines from my order and just pursued a refund for the 2 missing lines because its been down over 2 weeks already and I have to fabricate new lines anyhow Looks like I'll be busy fabricating most of the new lines on this over the weekend.

that vehicle sounds like a mess...can only imagine if he took it to another shop and played dumb saying my brakes feel funny and not mentioning any of the work that has been done.

LOL, Kinda wish he did bring it to another shop. When I went to actually install the correct used HCU assembly he got one of the old tube nuts was seized and snapped off so I couldn't install the assembly, I could not even unscrew all 3 of the E5 headed screws to transfer to swap ECU to the original HCU. I did manage to remove the T25 torx screws and tested the ABS Pump motors and the original tested bad and I was able to swap the pump motors and lucked out. I re-plumbed most of the brake tubes and mirrored the shape off the original ones using lots of Harbor freight zip ties to hold the new tubing to the old lines until the sections were mimicked exactly to the old ones and they fit into all the existing body clips neatly.Pretty tedious work. I was going to do the rear half of the right rear one that goes across a frame cross member above the fuel tank, but the tank was nearly full and from what I could feel by touch above and could see coming out behind it didn't seem to be in that bad a condition and it will just have to wait till it needs the fuel pump changed to justify dropping the fuel tank in order to change that section of brake line. I let my Maxi Sys battery run flat , so I did the automated ABS brake bleed with my SnapOn MT 2500. It gave instructions when to apply and release the brake pedal and turned on the pump but gave no instruction about opening any particular bleeder bolt and proceeding to another during the procedure. Who wants to refer to a service manual ? After that I bled the brakes again in a conventional manner.
