Where to buy Vacuum lines

Post by chruzzie » Fri 06 Jul, 2018 12:53 pm

Sorry if this has already been answered, I did search for an answer.
I am trying to find 5-10m of vacuum lines that the central locking uses.
Can something similar be bought from a hose supplier or hardware store?
I did find some on Flea Bay but it is in the USA.

Sorry if you have already considered this, but I would go to a wreck and pull all the tubing out - Should get you the lengths you need ?

go to autobahn and get long lengths of 3mm ID silicon vacuum tubing. super flexible, heat resistant and will stratch over and provide a nice seal over every connection in the car.

Or go to a stealership - the tubing is not that expensive.
