As above, the car failed it's MOT this morning due to:

Offside rear brake pipe excessively corroded.
Offside rear wheel bearing rough when rotated.
Parking brake: efficiency below requirements.

I can deal with the wheel bearing but not sure about the brake line. Is it a difficult job to replace them?

Pain in the arse to be honest, mainly because the nipple end going into the caliper runs incredibly close to the suspension and body.

If you intend to keep the car once you have fixed it it is a good idea to clean up all metal brake pipes with emery paper and coat them in a thick layer of waxoyl. Apart from a few hours it's virtually free and will extend the life of these potentially annoying mot fail points for many years.

Parking brake ***embly probably just needs cleaning, lubricating and proper adjustment.

Yeah I'll be keeping her. Just need to get the lines changed.

I'm ***uming it's an expensive job if it's a pain in the arse?
