09/09/2003 08:58:16   dhPaul   I'm trying to replace the front flexihoses. I have liberally sprayed the union to the metal brake pipe, the locknut etc with penetrating oil over several days, but using a 13mm brake pipe nut tool all I am achieving is moving the whole setup.
Any tips please?
Is applying heat (I have a paint stripper gun) a sensible and safe option?

10/09/2003 16:32:02   Alistair   Heat isn't a sensible & safe option as brake fluid is flammable.
