After all, all one is doing is making a crude tap, without the hardening.

Aye, there's something not right there if the union is nipping up and the pipe is leaking.

The flair on the pipe looks to be ok in the photo in post #1, and to be honest these are quite hardy so are normally hard to damage.

The threads of the union also look ok in the photo, although it is hard to tell 100% from a photo.

From what's been said I'm guessing it's the threads in the caliper that are the problem.

The threads will be damaged / deformed and the union is locking up before it gets fully home, hence the pipe still being loose and the leak.

I would remove the caliper from the car and go and get a brake pipe union from a parts place and make a tap as we have described in the previous posts. With the caliper on the bench you will be better positioned to see & possibly rectify the problem.

You could even remove the flexi from the car and try to get that into the caliper on the bench.

No good getting a new flexi only to find you still have the same problem as it's the caliper that's at fault.



Cheers.

It's also worth getting a proper brake spanner.

Saves rounding off union nuts as happens with open enders.

Just a thought, it is not possible to get the bleed nipple and brake flare the wrong way round, i.e. brake pipe where bleed nipple goes and bleed nipple where brake pipe goes.
Again just a thought.............

From what I remember on the Scenic calipers, two different thread sizes.
But may be wrong and could not discount.
