    Just the one. a couple of wrenches is all you need. Make sure you bleed them when your done.

    Once you replace the line, you need to open the bleeder valves on the calipers in order to get all the air out of the lines.

    How to bleed your brakes: start at passenger rear wheel, have someone pump the brakes about five times and HOLD them. Then you open the bleeder valve on the caliper. then go to driver rear, then pass. front. then driver front. make sure you keep the master cylinder full. dont let the brake fluid get on anything you like. It stains and is a very good paint remover.

    As you bleed the the caliper you will see the brake fluid change colors as the new fluid cycles thru. When you see new fluid go to the next caliper.
