Hi, my brake bomb hose weeping. I replaced/tightened the hose clamps but the fluid appears to be coming through the hose. It is not leaking much, brake feel is still good. No other leaks. 80 2.0 16v ACE avant. I found this info on it: 443612733C hose; shorten to:; 8X14X450; 260MM
Any ideas what pressures these hoses need to deal with and what spec is compatible with G 004 000(Febi 6161) fluid? Should I just order this one through the dealer? What would the procedure be like for replacing? Pump the brake 20x when off first and remove or, drain first? Many thanks.

That's just generic hose - not under pressure

The dealer couldn't supply one so I am going to use a Cohline Oil Pressure Hose with the same dimensions. Working pressure 55 bar and busting pressure 200 bar. It is suitable for mineral and synthetic oils.

Any tips would be welcome before I do the hose swap. Cheers
