hyrdaulic rubber hose 3mm internal diameter 150mm long

Post by nige » Thu Jun 18, 2015 12:10 pm

Having problems trying to locate a rubber hose that fits to clear thin plastic hose. The main problem i have in locating it as i cant explain to any of the dealers where the hose is to locate a part! OK so its located by the front near side wheel, its a rubber hose of about 3mm internal diameter that fits into something on the subframe.. its about 6 inches long and connects the other end to thin clear plastic pipe.. if any one could tell me a part number or give me some idea of what to ask for that would be great. I was told it was part no 95 600 551 but it isn't!!

I believe you are referring to the security valve leak-off. You don't need to buy a special part - just some fuel hose from the local factor will sort it.

I find screenwash rubber tubing (available from most motor factors) and the plastic connectors and tee or y connectors are just the job for replacing low pressure return pipes available in 3 or 4mm diameter, makes replacing the rear axle return pipes a doddle.
