Anybody know how to remove the interior panels to access the hose? Really annoyed at this point as I tried to avoid this and seem to have gotten bit in the worst place....
Yes, I had that one! You just pop the top brake lite cover off, take the brake lite bracket off, then you will see were the plastic hose exploded from freezing fluid. There is no easy pre-planned fix, just figure out a way to splice the tube. Mine was close enough to the fitting that I could just cut out the bad part and push it back onto the fitting and tighten it with a tie wrap.
Just make like you are changing the high brake bulbs, I think tahat is covered in the owner's manual, basically pop out, the a couple of screws to get to the tube.
