    Question caliper banjo bolts and washers

    How do you get the old washers off the banjos?. I am replacing my brake hoses and got stumped by a washer that will not go over the thread and come off to allow me to resuse the banjo bolts. I have new washers but was not told to get new banjo bolts.

    I am assuming my banjos on my 302mm calipers will be fine on my new 314mm calipers? Need to get these done tomorrow so that i can sell my complete 302mm set inc disks and pads and get some cash back for another mod thats in progress.

    I think I have part numbers for carrier bolts if i need them (might as well get new ones as i think one of them is ****ed anyway), if i need new banjos does anybody have a part number to hand?

    the stock washer on there is not copper although my replacement washers are copper.. i guess it got flattened thats why it will not go over threads, i just don't want to trash the treads.

    i guess I will leave them and include them in the kit for sale so the next owner just needs to attach them to the brake lines (easy job) and does not need to go through this. Unless somebody has a good tip..

    will pm ya with some details, have no pics yet as they are still on my car...

    ha ha i had that problem

    thought i was going mad.

    in end i used a pair of modelling pincers to cut the washer on either side so it just broke in two with no damage to banjo bolt

    cheers

    It's easier if you have new carrier bolts to hand, otherwise you have to clean off the threadlock from the old ones before you reuse them.

    i think one of my carrier bolts is rounded off anyway, so i will be ringing around for a welder to get a socket welded onto it.. So in reality i will be better off replacing all four and chucking the current ones anyway.
