    Default Brake banjo sizes

    So as I have read on here ,goodridge do braided hoses ,which are a recommened addition to doing the 314 upgrade.However there appears to be an issue with the rear banjo size on the vec c.
    Goodridge issue 10mm when 12mm rear banjo is required.
    Is this correct that on a 2005 model estate that a 12mm rear banjo is required?
    The front is 12mm also?
    Phoned LMF and they don`t do them any more,so went direct to goodridge and they still issue 10mm rear banjo`s.They`ll change it on the order but I need to state the size required for front and rear.I don`t really want to dismantle my brakes to find the size and the hoses come as a kit ,so don`t want spare rear hoses.Also want to do it in one go rather than faffing about.

    My fronts were fine for the kit, but yes the rears were too small. Mine's an 05 plate 1.9 CDTi so I would imagine yours would be the same mate...
