We are in the midst of renovating our site!

Our online store will re-open on WEDNESDAY AUGUST 12th with some exciting updates and improvements to your parts shopping experience.

If you already have an order in process with us, don't panic!

We are still processing and shipping orders from our warehouse as normal even while our site is offline.

We sincerely appreciate your patience while we are doing these site upgrades.

NOTICE

Order volume is currently high, and supply of many sought after parts/products is more limited than ever.

Please only continue if you accept that your requested items may not ship right away, and that shipment might be significantly delayed by unpredictable supplier-level backorder timeframes.

If you place an order request, we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days. Placing an order request effectively adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items.


Thank you for your business and understanding.

Brake Hose, Front, EUROPEAN, 1971-79 Superbeetle and 71-79 Type 2, 340mm F/F, 281-611-775BGR
Brake Hose, Front, EUROPEAN, 1971-79 Superbeetle and 71-79 Type 2, 340mm F/F, 281-611-775BGR


 
Brake Hose, Front, EUROPEAN, 1971-79 Superbeetle and 71-79 Type 2, 340mm F/F, 281-611-775BGR. Rubber brake hoses can fail in 2 ways; one is to split or leak, but another common failure is to clog or restrict on the inside, which holds brakes on!

This "failure" is not readily apparent on inspection, but if you have abnormal wear of the brake pads or shoes on one wheel, look closer. Jack up the wheel off the ground so it can freewheel. Hit the brakes a few times and release. Now, does the wheel turn freely? If not, crack the bleeder valve and see if the wheel can then move. If you had pressure (SQUIRT!) and now it's free, you likely have a "valving" brake hose, and replacement should solve the problem!
