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

Just for anyone in future reading this topic,

I went to a motor factors, had a copper brake cable made up with all new ends for less than 10! (Very easy to bend and would of done the job nicely)

But at the same time I had a mate use his tap set to remake the thread inside the caliper, and was able to use the old brake hose with no problems! (turns out I had definitely cross threaded it so definitely be careful when screwing the nuts home in these things!)
