    Brake pipes

    Hi, car failed its MOT today for corroded brake pipes, the actual copper ones, he said you should try cleaning them first and if there is pitting(?) then they will need to be replace, my friend thinks his dad should be able to do it for me so hopefully shouldn't cost me much but I'm waiting on him getting back to me.

    How much am i looking at paying to get the brake pipes replaced if they do need replaced?

    Cheers
    David.

    Got it all sorted today decided to just take it to a garage, cost me £100 for 3 new brake pipes and another one needed cleaning, also fitted the exhaust hanger for me which cost £2.50 to buy from a local car parts place, strange that they had it in stock but vauxhall didnt, oh well. Got to book my retest tonight then and hopefully be all sorted.
