Bad news for me. The wifes 1998 Astra G failed the MOT test today. I was afraid it might fail on the emissions, given the rough idleing which I haven't sorted yet, but actually it failed on the brakes.
The report said, brake discs and pads badly worn so no problem there I can replace those easily enough. The problem is that it also says off side front brake pipe and near side rear brake pipe badly corroded. I told the garage that I would put the things right myself but I don't have a clue how to replace the brake pipes.
Can I buy the pipes ready to fit or do I need to buy a length of pipe and bend it to shape and cut it to length?
If I have to bend it myself how do I do this without kinking the pipe when I bend it?
Is this something I should be taking on myself in the first place?
Please help. I don't want to go back and ask them to do it now.
