Re: Brake hose not sealing to caliper - Clio MK2 Rear Disc

No, you cant saperae the parts.
You'd have to buy the whole thing or get one from a scrap yard.

Looks like the threads are a bit flat on that nut.
If it went in cross threaded, it can do that.
It probably won't tighten up far enough unless brute force is used but the nut looks chewed up as it is.

The threads in the caliper might be damaged too.

You can get an idea how far the nut should go in by looking at the nut on the other side of the car.

That pipe will be different to a car with drum brakes.
It's just called a rear brake flexi hose but it also incorperates sections of metal pipe.
Motor factors might not stock these.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
