'Evening All,
Failed my MOT and amongst the list of jobs to do is replacement of the front brake hoses. They are the original pipes, 13 years old and and live in a hard place so probably need a fresh set.
Is there any tips tricks of special tools required?
I have read here that, when bleeding the brakes, the servo can be damaged if pressing the pedal past its "normal" down position.

Be very carefull when pushing the pedal down to the floor past its usual position!!
Sensor inside servo knoked out = new servo = Empty pockets?:eek:
Eh, so don't want that!

Thanks in advance, Dave

Gunson ezibleed, about £15 I think. Had one for years & wouldn't be without one.

Screw the reservoir cap on with a bit of plastic bag underneath to stop it draining. Plenty of rags, WD-40 the gunk away, job done!
