    That seems plausible, I've got a couple of things to pick up at vauxhall so will see what they say.

    Cars a daily runner so can only get the pipe whipped off at the weekend but I've got the car back from its MOT and it passed with an advisory on the brake pipe. I think the plastic coating has had a battering but the pipe is ok, if I can replace it I will to be on the safe side

I've just spent the weekend under the car replacing the whole suspension so don't think a simple thing of manufacturing brake pipes is going to break me

Anyway, you need either part number 8 or 9 in the pic below.

    6-7 are too short, the pipe from rubber hose goes up then back on itself behind strut then bends under wheel arch and goes straight up to abs unit, there are no connections in between just a straight length of pipe?

    Yeah, I tend to agree. Think it will have to be made up by hand. I've purchased some new flexi pipes so will have to drain the system to fit them so might as well take off the offending pipe and see what I can manufacture?
