Brake pipes

Post by Rachel » Fri Jul 22, 2011 5:27 pm

Hello.

Just had my mot and I need to replace 1 rear and both front to rear brake pipes. Just wondered what would be the going rate so I have some idea when I go for quotes. One garage (where I got MOT) has already said they don't want to do it because of having problems previously bleeding old abs pumps? Is this going to be a problem everywhere??

Thanks for any help.

hi Rachel its not a problem getting them done expect about £40 to £50 per pipe fitted including vat.

Never heard of a garage knocking the work back because of abs !

Hi Jim....thanks very much...I did think that their excuse was a bit odd...I will try my usual guys and get a quote tomorrow.
