Brake Banjo Bolts and Washers

So I took the rear calipers off just like I did the front ones to clean them up and paint them, and the rotors.

First thing, when I unbolted the lines i tied them up just like I did in the front. But this time both lines kept dripping brake fluid over night and drained the reservoir and made a big mess. Then when I went to reconnect them with new banjo washers I could not get one side to seal completely. And the lines seem to be twisted (in a loop) like they should go on backwards from the way I am putting them on that makes sense. The line has a tab on one side and it seems to me that should be facing the caliper to keep it in place. I had a helper taking these off while I worked on the fuel rail issue. So I didn't see how they came off.

Does anyone have a picture of the way their brake lines on?
Do I need to use 2 each (crush washers) on the top and bottom of the line since they are thinner then the stock washers. (I have checked every auto parts place near me)

Last thing, would any damage be done from it draining dry of fluid? I have bled the lines 4 times around each and get no air when I do. But the peddle goes way too far down now and I need to pump it 3 times to get it to fell normal. Or is it that I have not gotten to the air pockets yet?

You still have air pockets you may need a scanner to run the abs pump and bleed the air from it usually not but possible

Only one crush washer above an below the line make sure there's no dirt or scratches on the line or caliper washer surfaces

Is that the more elaborate version of the code scanner that your talking about? Or something else? And is it something I can rent someplace?

Also, the aftermarket washers are half as thick as the ones I took off. can you suggest someplace to get better ones?

I don't like the stealership here. So I will try Napa. Is your bed back on? If not can you send me a picture of the way your line bolts to the back caliper? Mine seems to be on strange.

if your lines are twisted thats where your air is trapped.i would put the caliper one and then the line should fall to its natural spot.if it were me i would just use the old washers.i have never had a problem using them.

The lines are just looped. I had them unbolted from the caliper by others and the way it looks like it should go back on makes the brake line have a loop in it.

Thanks Keith. That explains it. I have it upside down and flipped backwards. The strain from the loop could be what is making it leak. Why do that have that edge on there if it doesn't hook to the edge of anything???
