brake minor components
« on: April 22, 2019, 08:54:17 PM »
Hi everyone, two questions in one.  Mk2 rear inner hose retainer. 
I am replacing rear inner brake hoses.  I don't want to damage other components (they don't look very 'fresh'.  The axle mounted bracket that retains the hex end of the hose looks very flimsy.  I don't want to apply much force to remove the old hose, the hex of which is rusted into place dispite several days of ease oil.  Is there some special tool on the market (I guess it would look a bit like very small welder's mole grip, with a gap in each anvil) that can be used to force the hex out of the bracket? 
Second question, does anybody know the part number for the 'C' clip that holds the pipe into the bracket please?  Whenever I find one on the internet that looks perfect, the 'check fit' facility always tells me it will not fit my vehicle.  As none of them tell me the thickness of the clip or the OD of the pipe they are supposed to fit, it is difficult to make an informed decision. 
Regards, Slow-n-Steady

Don't know on the first question of an easy way of doing it, can only suggest a wire brush cup on a drill might help loosen it up a bit (though if its really bad it might finish it off as well).

If its number 7 in the attached, try either 1547066 or 6M21 2D218 AA - I can only check against Ford vins, but that matches my 2001 mk2 so would expect it to be the same as yours.

If its number 19 then either VX4D0 611715 VXB or 1078710 is the number for that one.

Hi Brianh,
Thank you for the research and response.  I looked up each part on the internet and both 7 & 9 in the diagram have the same profile.  Mine are as photograph.  That is the best specimin I could recover!  I baught Febi hoses ready to fit, so when I realised I would need fasteners that are not supplied with the hose(s) I e-mailed Febi and asked if the sold the clips seperatly.  No response so far. 
Regards, Steve

Hi Brian h, 
Febi told me they didn't sell the part to fit their hoses.  I continued to search and found Febi Item No/Article 19520 replacing OEM 191 611 715 (Febi EAN 402 781 619 520 7).  I asked again if this part would fit the numbered hoses.  They confirmed that they do fit and cost about 3 each plus 8.50 postage!  They intend to correct their internal search facility, but when? 
Regards, Steve

If you ever need Febi parts, try some of your local motor factors. If they deal with Febi, they can order anything in usually next day if you can supply the parts numbers, saving the postage cost - I've had a few oddball Febi parts this way from one of my local suppliers.

Thanks for the reply Paul.  Local Pagid holder 2 miles away and I have the part number, but at 3 each! 
From your handle, are you electrical?  If so, any idea where the lamp failure sensing resistors are on Alhambras?  On my daughter's V70 they are in the driver's footwell and the fault cleared when I removed and replaced every resistor.  Assuming corroded contacts!

The common fault is either the wrong rear bulbs or bad contacts on them. The light should light when the ignition switches on, then go out once the brake pedal has been pressed. It only some of the lights (headlights and brake lights as far as i know, not sure it does monitor the sidelights as it didn't seem to pickup on my rear tail lights being blown).

The other thing that might cause it to detect blown bulbs when they appear ok is broken wires in the tailgate - specifically in the gaiter on the righthand side, this is a well known failure area on the galaxy.

daddyfixit - check your PM folder if you see this.

Sound advice from brianh, problems usually stem from poor contacts, earths or faulty door wiring - particularly inside the tailgate gaiter.

My old Galaxy didn't have the lamp failure detect, so I can't be any more specific.
