    Driver side front brake hose line had to be replaced 12 months ago. I took my car for several services this week which included brake fluid service so asked the garage to replace the front left at the same time. However they didn't because they couldn't loosen the brake line and to do it they will have to replace the whole metal ine for extra cost which is not a lot, but I left it as it's not causing me any problem.
    The garage said they used WD40 and may be possible to open it after a while. The mechanics at the garage are very able, honest and reliable and very happy with their service.
    Two questions:
    1. Do I need to replace this hose because I replaced the other side?
    2. Has 10 year old BMW's known to have problems with jammed/stuck brake line nuts?

    Corroded and stuck brake line nuts are very common, the ends of the lines are exposed to the elements and eventually corrode.

    If the line is ok and not causing issues and passes an MOT, then I'd say leave it alone.

    Yes the garage said it is common ...

    Brakes are fine, just done brake fluid service and passed MOT last month. So I will leave it for now.

    Agreed, if it looks fine then leave it be. I had all mine replaced at the rear because they'd started to corrode, but left the fronts as they're fine.

    Quite common for the rears to go first, they run the length of the car exposed and there's much more line to corrode, where as the fronts are mostly inside the engine bay..
