How do you remove a brake line without losing water?

Why does my vehicle pull to the left when I brake?
Worn or warped rotors: Worn or warped rotors can cause the vehicle to vibrate when the brakes are applied and in some cases the car will pull to one side when braking. Collapsed brake hose: A brake hose that has collapsed can cause calipers to move unevenly, also causing the vehicle to pull to one side when braking.
Why does my car jerk when I brake?
Unsurprisingly, a car jerks when braking if there’s a problem with the brakes. Typically, brakes will squeal, squeak or grind, particularly with warped rotors. If that’s the case, use a brake bleeder kit to bleed the brakes. You may also need to replace brake pads and replace or resurface worn rotors.
