    Question Brake hoses ?

    Is there a stainless braided brake hose set for the Vec-C ?
    I've heard somewhere there is one but may be problems with it fitting correctly ( banjos are different) ?
    Anyone know of these kits and where i could get one/how much ?
    Thanks in advance.

    LMF sell the goodridge kit, but ask them to check it fits the vectra -c rear banjo's as they didn't used to...

    fronts fit fine, rears were undersize to the bolt.....

    Steve was knocking them out for around £50

    I got a set off Ebay, thr fronts are fitted, but I haven't tried the rear ones to check and see. They came directly from Goodridge so I'm still hopeful.

    I got SS and paid less than the above price for the Zinc plated ones.

    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : Exclusive

    Engine : 1.8

    Year : 2005

    When i was trying to get a set of the goodridge hoses, LMF advised that they didnt sell them for the veccy due to the rears not fitting, so i rang goodridge direct and spoke to one of their chaps in the technical team (helpful) and he advised me that there is two sizes that vauxhall are using either a 10 or a 12 and advised me to measure the bolt after dismantling the brake and then having to rebleed it, and then order a set which would be with me in approx two weeks of ordering.

    I hope that this helps

    I got a set, the fronts fitted no bother, but the rears were 10mm unions which didn't fit.

    Got in touch with Goodridge and they sorted it out Can't fault them for customer service

    Like phil67 says, best to check before you order them.

    So it seems that the best thing to do is order the hoses anyway and send the rears back to Goodridge for the correct size banjo's ?
    Thanks for the replies guys.
