MG MGF Technical - Braided brake hoses


I recall a ways back there was a posting re: folks having bought braided brake hoses only to discover they were missing some sort of adapter to connect said hoses onto the steel pipes (from the ABS unit).

Does this ring a bell and if so where can these connectors be got?

Thanks in advance,


yep thats true is it the pipe that goes over the flexi the brading. if u look on the the archives. u must sigh up its free there is loads off info on that for you

Which hoses have you sourced? I'd imagine that any hose kit purchased from one of the mg specialists would have come complete with all parts required to complete the job?

Goodridge hoses, large female (internally) threaded connector on the non-caliper end. The OEM hoses have a smaller diameter male (externally) threaded connector on their ends, so I'm thinking some sort of gender-bending-reducer?


i have just fitted a set of goodridge hoses and they went straight on no problems perhaps they have sorted them !

Mac, I wonder if you've been sent the wrong hoses?
