    Default Renault 10 brake line

    Just removed rubber line from master cylinder to just under drivers side wheel arch which in turn connects to the brake fluid bottle
    Does anyone have one or know who should or can this be replaced with any rubber hose from Clark rubber
    Thanks

    I thought it was a steel tube similar to the R8?
    If you have it out, take it Superstop Brakes at 727 Whitehorse Rd, Mont Albert VIC 3127 and they will make one for you using the original as a template if originality is important to you.

    Angelo - it is steel but there are two rubber hoses where it passes through the scuttle panel and boot floor.

    Don't use fuel line as the brake fluid will sweat through it over a period. VW beetles and other early models use a special braided rubber hose. A VW specialist should keep this. BMW 2002s also use the same type hose.
