    96 Gr. Caravan proportion valve.

    My buds got a leaky one. This a pain to do or what? I haven't seen the vehicle yet so I don't know how rusty the lines are etc. Shop quoted him 250-500 depending on if lines need replaced. I was gonna charge him 100. Would the parts be anything at all like my 96 zj? thanks

    Ya, I've done a few. They're on the drivers side, about 24" in front of the rear tire. Bad spot for 'em.

    I usually cut the lines off flush at the fittings, and use a 6pt socket to pull 'em out. Then, it's a matter of cutting the lines back as far as needed to get solid metal again, and fabbing patches.

    The shop rate is the same as what I'd quote. Most come in around the $350 range. Count on buying at least $40 in lines and fittings.

    Oh, and IIRC, it's Metric...

    Job done, just had to replace the lines behind the valve. Wasn't too bad of a job. No leaks and it stops!

    Good to hear! Sometimes they're a b!itch, sometimes they're okay.
