Recently had the front left brake line rust out & fail on this 91 Rodeo.
Nothing happened & not a real big deal to replace. BUT, when this line
failed there were NO brakes at all, just the parking brake & thank goodness
it's a stick shift -driving in a very mountainous region of British
So my question is this: Isn't there supposed to be some fail-safe braking
even when a line fails. That is if a front line goes aren't the backs still
supposed to work? What else is could be wrong?
