    Who has R32 front brakes?

    I got mine fitted a while ago now and only just remembered that the brake pipes didnt fit back in to the little clip bit. Did you change to braided hoses or use the r32 lines?

    Cheers

    Do you mean the little clip bit on the shock? My braided lines dont fit that clib either so I've just cable tied them to the shock.

    No not on the shock, its actually part of the inner lining, behind the shock if you like..

    I used the oe r32 lines. I used a bar to slightly open up the 2 prongs which the pipe sits in. Then used the oe clip to secure it. They also fitted perfect on the shock with no cable ties needed.

    I'm pretty sure its the 2 prongs your talking about is where its not fitting for me using the r32 lines.. Will have a look the week after next and see if there's room for some 'persuasion'

    Still open to other ideas though!

    No other ideas needed. Only needs the tiniest bit of moving.
