Front brake hose guide clips

Post by DougB » Sat Mar 01, 2014 9:56 am

I'm stripping and rebuilding my front brakes. Wanted to do it all today but I've got the guide clips that go into the front mudguard on order, won't arrive for a few days.

Anyone know if I can fit these later when it's all assembled, or do they have to go over the hoses before it's al connected up? Hard to see from the pics if they split or not.

And there was me thinking they did, are you 100% sure, I would go check for you but I'm off to work now, not something that's worth guessing, so go with Bernie :)

Just had another look, they split vertically through the fixing spiggot, so you can resume work.
Sorry for the duff info (it is 3 years since I took them off).

Thanks for the replies, glad I can get it back together, I hate getting into a job and having to put it on hold! The callipers don't look too tidy but they're doing their job perfectly now :D
