Quick question...

Can I replace the inner and outer rear brake pipes with a 3/16" pipe (outers are 3/16" at present but inners look larger diameter)? And what are the fittings to connect the pipe to the hose? I have 10mm male and female nuts but think I may need other parts. A little list of pipes, hoses, nuts and clips would be much appreciated :icon_wink:

Cheers
Ross.

(Rear brakes are drums, plus car is '99 non turbo)

All the brake pipes are 3/16 but some are plastic coated.

When I replaced a pipe on my old GLS I tried using normal metric unions but couldn't get them to seal. Ended up remaking the pipe using the unions of the old pipe.

Make sure you check the rear pipes above the fuel tank,(very difficult to see), mine had rusted very badly there.

Max.

Worst case, go to your local hydraulic hose supply company and have them make you a long stainless steel braided line from the ABS distributon block to the wheel cylinder.
