Pipe into slave cylinder

Post by vern on Thu Feb 28, 2013 6:51 am

So set about swopping my slave cylinder over but the pipe that screws into the top it ie feeds the fluid in is propper corroded in and i fear the worst trying to undo it.

Does anyone know if that small rubber pipe from master cylinder to slave is still available or does some one perhaps have a decent one?

£40 for a short hydraulic hose?? No way!!

I'd just get the brake pipe spanner on the original and hope for the best, else I'd be looking to have one made up, or find an existing aftermarket alternative.

Once you have the old one off you could try and work out if an existing flexi hose would do, like Cinquecento rear brake hose for example, or anything that's out there in numbers with a hydraulic clutch - I'm not saying the cinq option it will fit but would be going down that rout.

Yeah agreed seems outrageously priced for a 5inch hose!

Will keep soaking it in wd40 then.
