Pressure Hose Ideas

Post by RJD999 » Tue Feb 09, 2021 6:45 pm

Hi,

My 85 635CSI 5 speed, just had new brake booster and accumulator done and the shop that did said I need the pressure hose but everyone I can think of says they are backordered and only made by BMW. They tried fabbing with new rubber and same ends but the soldering does not hold up to the pressure. Right now my car goes straight but that's about it. Any ideas on alternate hoses from another model that could work or place that has new or good used? Can't believe a $90 part can sideline my car.

Thanks,
Rob

I'd try a used one, I bet Elias Gergy has one.

Are you on the facebook e24 groups? Elias parts e24s in Cali.

If you can't find an OEM hose supplier, I am surprised to hear that a hose supply house can't fabricate what you need from proper hose, and crimp connectors.

I remember using these guys for a custom hose when I was in L.A.

Jose, it is the restrictor which goes approximately in the middle of the hose. The shop I went to said it needed a special die for crimping. So I just antied up and went new. I replaced all the hydraulic lines during my restoration whether they needed it or not. It wasn't expensive.
