Cheers, got some tubing out a local moter factors. Euro & halfords didn't seem to have it, just the whole bleeding kit & it's a 51 plate I've got.

Any suitably sized ring spanner should work.
Don't use an open ender as can round the brass if tight.
Or if feeling sophisticated, you can get a Brake Spanner which is a heavy, open ring, with differing sizes (for common ferrules and nipples) at each end.

Motor factors for pipe.
1 litre should be plenty
Coop for Jam Jar
Cheers man. Got the brake spanner today. Shall be doing it on Wednesday so hopefully got the right one or I'll be back changing it haha.

Proceed the rest of the procedure with a spanner then.

Better still a brake flare nut spanner is the absolute ideal tool. I use them myself.
Yeah I get what you mean. Cheers for the advice man.
