    Re: Road trip UK... Oil leak....

    Oil pipes/hoses changed today, the new ones are now stainless steel, the old hoses were leaking: One from rusty area that had been rubbing against the other pipe, and the other hose was leaking from a joint, maybe a new 'O' ring would have cured it, but it was going rusty somewhere else along it's length. So best to change while all stripped down.
    Took me about 4 hours in all but I was in no rush.

    Caught 6 litres of oil into my bucket, which was replaced with new oil.
    None of the screws at the joints were overly tight, I was a little worried about stripping threads before I started, steel screws into aluminium housings can be trouble, but not today.

    All in all a fairly easy job for someone with a little aptitude or mechanical ability.

    The hoses retail at around £700 for the pair.

    Good day's work and you were certainly lucky with the fixings. I've had a few shear and in need of replacement.
