Re: Corroded brake line - replace only corroded part?

An update on this:

The mechanic ended up replacing the whole brake line.

The section in question was heavily corroded, but there were a couple of other sections towards the front of the brake line that were also quite badly corroded, so he decided just to replace the whole thing.

Curiously, the other brake line shows no sign of corrosion!
