Hi all,

I'm trying to lengthen my shimano deore brake hose, so I've bled the system dry, loosened the retaining nuts (with enough brake fluid in the caliper and lever to lubricate the parts for release), and tug on the hose, as per the instructions. Well, here's the rub... Either time or a bad mechanic has managed to jam the hose assembly into both the caliper and brake assembly. Well, I tried wiggling, tugging and finally yanking - an now the hose has split into 2 pieces, with one hose assembly jammed in both of the caliper and brake lever assembly. Looking for help re: how to extract these hose parts.

Thx in advance.
