Hello Kiethc,welcome to the forum.

You'll be glad to here that the pipes are available seperately,but less glad about the price of them.Someone on the forum had to replace the high and low pressure pipes,and they were over £200 new from Renault.Unfortunately they are only available as a genuine part.Also,apparently they are an absolute pig to fit,but I can't confirm or deny this as I've never changed any...

You may be lucky and find a second hand pipe,but the problem is that this is quite a common problem on Laguna 1's,so a lot of older scrapped Lags are going to have pipes in a similar condition to yours.

One other problem is that the ends that screw into the rack can also corrode badly,and can sieze into the thread in the rack,which means when you try and undo them they will either round off or pull the thread out of the rack......

Sorry to sound so negative,but at least I'm honest.
Good luck,and let us know how you get on.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
