    Banjo bolt/new hose connection?on Juicy7....

    I wanted to replace my rear brake line on Juicy 7s...sorry if this is stupid but.....the new hose does not have a banjo bolt on it. Do you reuse the old one?...and if so, how is it taken off?(seperated from the brake line itself, rear brake,at caliper)...Im looking at it and have read the Avid tech manual which does not mention this or show a picture, is it as simple as some vice grips and a little turn? Sorry for lame question at 10pm at night Again...I just want to replace the brake line...bleeding is not a problem... thanks for any help/advice.

    ...Its an Avid Juicy brake kit...came with one brake line, 2 compression fittings and 2 of the tiny banjo bolt screws...that was it.

    I didnt [I]order[I] the wrong one....I went to LBS and explained what I was doing and the guy handed me the kit and said it would work. Unfortunately, this bike shop does this type of thing all the time but they are the closest to me. I got the correct parts kit ordered yesterday after debating with them for a bout 45 minutes that Juicy 7s are different than Juicy 3s at the caliper connection...even showing them on bikes in the shop....oh well...nobodys perfect...just a little frustrating.
