[s-cars] Da bomb! Brake bomb, that is...

Eric, I just had the luxury of replacing the return line.
Mine light was coming on intermittedly for a while, then one fine cold day 
the return line split.
It's below the brake MC, and ducks behind the ABS pump.

My cost for the stealer 321 CAD.
It was a bitch to do, of course. Luckily being very cold up here that week, 
my mechanic did it, and I just had to pay the bill.

You may want to look at that hose.
