ABS brake hose on eBay

Post by Jaba »

Has anyone else ordered any of THESE hoses on ebay recently ?
If so I suggest you check them carefully as the two I got, despite being correct in the parts catalogue were for a non ABS car as they would only accept a 3mm pipe union not the 4.5mm one that makes the hose suitable for ABS.

The seller was very good and agreed a refund instantly.
The Joy of BX with just one Citroën BX to my name now. Will I sing Bye Bye to my GTI or will it be Till death us do part.

I bought a pair from http://www.brakeparts.co.uk/ of the ABS type - but not as cheap as those on eBay. Ironically just a couple of minutes I was looking at Peugeot 106 hoses for a bargain £2.49 from the very same seller!

Before buying the BX pipes I got them to confirm the (rather unusual) M9 thread size.
