This great perspective shows many features of the A320 landing gear assy. The three flex hoses are the brake pressure lines and the steel braided electrical conduit is for the anti-skid system and possibly for the brake cooling fans if so equipped. Also brake temperature sensors. Then there at about the middle of the brake assembly you can see the quick disconnect for the brake line. On the forward side is a similar quick disconnect for the alternate brake system. The brake assemblies are amazingly easy to change. Just three bolts and three alignment studs. Six mount studs in all for the shear strength needed in braking...but only three of them are threaded for retention. Very easy to work on. There are special tools for hoisting the assembly into place....but not needed. Two guys can lift it a (very) short distance onto a palette carried by a finger lift. It's better to use the lifting sling though. Safety first.
