My rear brake pipes needed replacing a few months back on it's mot (02 LX td). I've since been under underneath and undersealed the new ones along with the rear heater pipes .
Never had a car with so much plumbing underneath !

Mine's just in having a new bearing and hub on the front and the garage has called and said that my rear brake pipes are very corroded. It had (allegedly) a full brake check at Kwik Fit in Feb this year - surely they should have reported this! Had they mentioned it I wouldn't have spent the fortune with them that I did, just walked away and spent the money on a newer car!!


Is it an expensive job to get the brake pipes replaced? MOT's due next month :(

Which brake pipes are they ? The ones that meet the rubber pipes near the rear axle are ones that normally rust due to the placement and the angle they are sat at. If the garage that did the MOT does repair work then this is the easiest thing to fail them on and only takes 30 mins max for a garage and about £1.50p worth of parts and the cost to you ? £40-50. I always take mine to an MOT place that only does MOT's and no repair work, and beleive me you do get a fair MOT there.
