If you mean to say that you can't loosen the nuts using a normal wrench, you might want to try (what I think is called) a flare nut wrench. It's kind of like a box end wrench with one side cut out so you can slip it over the brake line then onto the nut. It grabs a lot better than an open end wrench. hope that helps.

haha weekend warrior tools, but yes that is the wrench you will need either a 12mm, 13mm or 14mm i cant remember exactly which one but i am pretty sure it is one of those.

i got my flare nut wrench set from Snap-On they are b!tchen but the set of 6 wrenches cost me somethin like $250
