New brake hoses?
« on: May 16, 2020, 10:16:15 AM »
I received these advisories on my MOT recently so I'm wanting to sort.

Offside Front Brake hose slightly deteriorated (1.1.12 (b) (ii))
Nearside Rear Brake hose slightly deteriorated (1.1.12 (b) (ii))
Offside Rear Brake hose slightly deteriorated (1.1.12 (b) (ii))

The nearside front had to be replaced as it was too badly deteriorated however I'm wondering would the following kit cover the others and if not what's best to get?

Car is on 170k so it's starting to need stuff like this doing.

TIA!

Yes - they would fit, but that price listed is excluding VAT or delivery.

I would recommend Hel over Goodridge, they always had stainless connections and the hoses feel a lot better quality + they are cheaper:

I bought from this seller late last year (annoyingly the BIN price is now £5 less!), fast delivery and I even got to request colour

I put a set of their hoses on my car a couple of weeks back and the banjo bolts did not fit, thread size was correct but pitch was wrong.
With the lockdown going on it was difficult getting the correct ones. A local friendly breakers sorted me out. I wanted to be sure I had the right ones before I started changing them, I had bought re-con calipers so I took one with me to make sure. Luckily the ones on the car fitted anyway but wanted to be sure.
