    wrong section but try something like this https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005004392255429.html and https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003696602816.html
    You can safely use even normal rubber hose since the sistem is not under high pressure(around 4 bars)

    Truth be told: I haven't had a chance to get around to cleaning all of the electrical components, but in the mean time since my last post, I took the car to get the automatic transmission fluid changed. And, ever since they changed the ATF the car has been driving normally again. No stutters, no acceleration hesitation, no jerking, no gear slipping. And most importantly:

    I haven't had a single dashboard light since the day when the ATF was changed.

    It's like the car has been brought back to life.

    Now while I have all the dashboard lights gone, I will take the car to get it's due MOT on Monday the 6th of May.

    I am now happy and satisfied that the car has been working well for a week now. I knock on wood.

    Update folks! The car passed MOT on Monday, so now the road worthiness is valid until June 2026. The air filter and the diesel fuel filter was changed on Tuesday. Mechanic says that before the next MOT I will need to change the front IDS+ struts because the shock absorbers are leaking and I will need to change the brake lines because the are really rusty.

    For struts you have 3 options:
    1. buy them new, about 1000 euros a piece
    2. go to normal suspension maybe even coilovers
    3. buy refirbushed ones from poland for about 100$ a piece

    Oh man, I contacted my local dealer and they gave me a price quote for the job and they quoted me 450,000 Hungarian forints this is the equivalent to US$1250 roughly €1100. But in this case, luckily that includes all of the work and additional supplies and tools in preparation and it includes the price for both struts so it’s a bit cheaper than €1000 per strut. I still think it’s a lot of money, so I am going to think about it for a few days, and weigh my options. I am considering buying completely new ones but the price makes the refurbished option from Poland look really really good right now.

    I have been enjoying the car a lot lately. I know that it still needs some new repairs but I have been driving it around as-is for a while and this thing is solid. It is honestly a good car. I like the performance and the power is really good. And I really like the handling, even in the bendy roads and as well as roadabouts. Just yesterday, this car earned a great amount of respect from me. I had to do an Elk Test type maneuver because some idiot allowed their unleashed dog to bolt full speed sprint into a main road, I had to swerve the car into opposing traffic at speed and the car simply hugged the road like a pro. It's a solid car, even when it still needs some pending repairs, it's a solid car.

    I spoke too soon. I did not knock on enough wood. There is a power steering fault yet again with the dashboard light. �� when connected to my laptop, it shows no communication with CAN-BUS; can’t clear codes; can’t reprogram it. Can't do nothing with the EHPS module. Power stealing failed on Monday afternoon. it worked fine that morning. I drove myself to work. After work, I went to the parking lot, hopped into the car, and there was no power steering. Again the car is sitting in my mechanic's garage…
