Laguna Mk11 Brake pipes/hose
I have spent over an hour searching the web and this forum and can't find an answer so hopefully you can help
My son has a Laguna Mk2. I replaced the pads and fitted new caliper seal and boot. When reassembling and starting to bleed there was brake fluid pouring out of the caliper where the pipe enters.
So 2 questions please.
1. Should there be a washer between nut and caliper body, I assume not but wonder if one dropped off.
2. Is it possible to replace only the last metal pipe, It looks as though the flexible hose and metal pipe either side are joined with no way to dismantle. Pipe is fine but in my effort to tighten nut sufficiently it has not rounded and if there is no washer then it is not sealing properly. Hoping I don't have to replace complete pipe and can just replace the last piece of pipe 6 about inches.
Thanks in advance.
