Brake Lines, Repairing

Flare the brake lines with 5 mm outer diameter using the Brake Line Tool Kit -VAS6056- without damaging the coating. In this way, brake lines can be inexpensively replaced in partial sections in certain cases.

Working with the Bonded Window Tool Kit V -VAG1356- is not permitted because of the coating and diameter of black brake lines.


  • Brake lines must not be bent more than 90º, otherwise they kink or deform causes unacceptable constriction in the wire cross-section.
  • Disconnect the brake lines preferably at the vehicle floor.
  • The position of intermediate pieces should be selected so that they cannot rub against moving parts.
  • Do not lubricate the spindle, clean only with mineral spirits.

Special tools and workshop equipment required

  • Brake Line Tool Kit -VAS6056-
  • Brake Charger/Bleeder Unit -VAS5234-
