    hi.
    I just changed the near side brake caliper on my 320D and the flexi hose is a bit twisted after a new caliper fitted. The hose was ok when i put the caliper on place but then i tightened it properly and it feels rigid and there is little wave in it before the grommet. fluid came trough fine when we bleeded it and the lines on the hose are straight (nothing like 90-180 degree)

    I just changed it, it was probably the factory hose which is 11years old. Massive difference, the old one was very rigid and the pipe didn't move in the grommet at all, for a few pint worth of £ I'm not taking a risk.
