Description

If you're replacing the brake hose as well then spray the brake hose ferrule at the caliper, but be careful to prevent any oil getting on your brake pads. Note the position of the types of boy fixings and, if you are replacing a rear brake, note the position of the fixings shown in the photo. You can leave it on your hands for quite some time during a repair, but it will eventually make them red and itchy.

I've just replaced all the brake pipes on my 90 including some flares made on the vehicle without a single failure.

Please ensure you have read the information in the above sections and that you have the correct tools available.

This is possible with the car on a full height lift and after removing various shields etc, maybe the fuel tank, it will probably not be possible on axle stands. Almost every modern European car will now use the metric single DIN flare (except some 'classic' Land Rovers and Jaguars). One of the problems with working on brake pipes is that as soon as you disconnect them they start to drip brake fluid which makes the job messy and unpleasant. However, often you don't get this lucky, and be aware that your brake pipe may snap at the fitting so make sure there is a basin under it to catch any stray drips of brake fluid and some rags .

Always use a flare spanner for undoing the fitments at the brake pipe end of the fitting, as they will be very tight and an ordinary spanner is likely to round off the nut making it impossible to remove without grinding it out.I've tried the little generic on-car (block with a handle) style - although they work better than the traditional ones with the separate clamp and bar, I found the threads strip out easily - had it happen on three units that hadn't done much work. Place the brake pipe ends into the jam jar to catch any fluid and seal the hole in the junction box with a male brake pipe end cap.

SAE flares tend to only be used on American cars, but slowly even these are being standardised on the improved DIN fitment. Metric and imperial flares are interchangeable with metric or imperial brake pipes, for example you can safely use a metric flare on an imperial brake pipe. If you are replacing rear brake pipes I would strongly recommend that you have some spare Type 4 black screw nuts shown in the photo as these often break on removal - they are available very cheaply from your dealer. but copper grease has never caused me any issues unless I've accidentally allowed it to contaminate the pipes. If any air bubbles are left in the brake lines your brakes will not work properly and will feel spongy when you press the brake pedal.Thats what I thought you would get with the kit I linked to but it looked different, but looking closer at the picture the female coupler might be a back to back one but its only 7mm long, the pictures aren't very clear. Many years ago I thought of a simple way to solve this problem - just make a set of male and female brake pipe end caps (see photo)! Brake pipe flares are the way in which the end of your brake pipe is "flared" out to joint the next brake fitment, they do not relate to the type of fitment itself. Before you put the wheels back on and lower the car to the ground you need to check everything you replaced in situ - this includes clips, pipes, bolts and screws. You may as well do all those extra servicing jobs at the same time, as this will stop you having to pull the system apart at a later date and bleed it again.

Replacing your brake pipes is not hard, but it does take some time and does require special (although cheap) tools. However, you do risk scoring your brake master cylinder using this method by forcing down further than it would normally go into old dirty deposits.There wasn't loads of pipe left showing to work with but as this is so small it makes life really easy. Jack up the car under the rear subframe in the middle and put jack stands under the rear trailing arms near the pivot point for access. To use your end caps, just screw the appropriate end cap onto the brake pipe you've disconnected and it will seal it completely and easily.
