Unhappy Brake hose not sealing to caliper - Clio MK2 Rear Disc

Hi,

I removed the brake hose from the caliper, but now when I reconnected it, it leaks fluid. Are there any tricks that I'm missing? The pipe feels loose in the nut even when the nut has reached maximum tightness.

Everytime I look online for information about reconnecting brake hoses to calipers I find people discussing banjo fittings with compression olive rings, but clearly this is nothing like what I have here.


Is it possible to disconnect part D from part F (the fatter rubber looking hose) and replace section D? It does not look clear whether connecor E can be disconnected and reconnected.

It is a Clio MK2 100bhp DCI (2005) with rear disc brakes.

If anyone could help me with terminology so I can better explain to a mechanic or motorfactors what parts I require that would be great thanks in advance.

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.

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.

Tend to agree with Dave.
Thread doesn't look clever and if it has been cross threaded, calipre thread may be suspect too.

Cheers for the quick replies. Will be a shame if I have cross threaded the caliper too as I have just refurbed it with new pistons and seals. I was in a hurry putting it back on last night and it was pretty tight screwing it in...

Is there anything to look out for at the scrappy when getting a new flexi? Wear etc.

Are there any temporary fixes that would make a seal and the car safe to drive to the scrappy or garage?

Are these "rear brake hoses" nothing to do with section F in my original post? They're all over the internet. Don't see anything that has the fittings for the caliper
