Result, or at least half a result. Hope the other side gives in too!

Hmmm me too. When the goodrich hoses were put on, probably 8 years ago, someone had already releaved that line of the pvc coating so it's worse. Managed to get it ever so slightly to turn but as the brake fluid did it's job me thinks it swelled the pvc grinding the tuning to a halt. Going to need that cooks torch.

The offending item.




Incase anyone interested this is what these lines should look like. Look how superb they are on the mega low mileage 2.8 quattro parts car. This is the best one so far but you get the point.Low mileage really does count!

Perhaps later, off down the gym with my lad now, spending a bit time together. He is off to Austrlia 25th travelling, he says one way ticket, going to be a sad day.

At least he has my music taste now to take with him
