    Hi,
    I'm putting my breakes on a new bike. The brake-hose runs through a taco on a Turner Flux, which means that neither the caliber or the brake lever can go through.

    Is it easier to unmount the hose at the caliber or the brake-lever? And is it possible to do without having to "destroy" any of the parts?
    Is it possible just to unscrew the banjo - screw it back on and bleed?

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure what a "taco" is, but I'd go with the banjo option, then as you mention, bleed the brake after refitting.

    Thanks to both.
    I went with Zagi's advice, and it worked. Didn't spill any oil from the hose, but I lost a bit from the lever chamber.
