Hi guys, got bit of an issue. Car failed it's mot today. The failure notice reads that the rear right brake pipe above the axle is excessively corroded. So my question now is that how hard a diy is this. I'm pretty handy with tools, done plenty of jobs on this car now. Can the people who have carried out this task please tell me the following:

  1. how much clearence is needed to carry out the job
  • how accesible are the parts in question
  • Is it a two man job, never bled the brakes on this car

Thank you.

It's not that bad, IIRC the drivers side can be done without dropping the tank, :thumbsup

Even if you do have to drop the tank down slightly, you don't have to unplug anything or remove any pipes, so it's all good, :) (was for me anyway, the last one I did a while ago, :hihi)

It really is just a case of lowering the petrol tank down in situ so it rests on the prop.

See here for a rough guide on a E36.
