ZS Stainless Brake Hose upgrade.
Just after a little help with upgrading the OE rubber brake hoses on my 2005 mark 2 ZS to a set of HEL stainless hoses I bought from MG Mania Ltd.
The OE hoses have 3 brackets which bolt to the hub carrier. The HEL hoses came with 1 plastic fitting which is not fixed to the hose and can slide the length of the hose.
What`s the solution to this lack of fittings? Are there brackets which can be bought? Do you remove the brackets from the old hoses and mackle them to fit the new hose? Is it a complete design and fabricate a set for yourself job?
I`ve stripped all the calipers and rebuilt them with new components, fitted new EBC Greenstuff pads and done a complete change of fluid but am now at the stand, stare and scratch head stage with the hoses.
Appreciate any input please.
