And yes, it is possible to replace the lines without pulling the bumper - just remove the plastic underpan completely and you'll have access to the fittings on both ends. I got new ones from ER, but you should be able to buy aftermarket lines with the correct fittings. Just make sure they're exactly the same length and fitting types as the originals or you may encounter some line routing issues.
Yeah, it is definitely oil....guess the oil s traveling p and own the lines....where did you get the steel braided line? I will ave o figure out what size.
