Repair the XJS Master Cylinder hoses connected to the brake fluid reserviour

On most XJS cars, there are four small rubber hoses connecting the Master Cylinder to the brake fluid reservoir. These get brittle, crack and leak brake fluid everywhere (watch your paint)! You cannot use regular fuel line or other rubber hose to replace them. You must use a hose designed for brake fluid use. They don't get any pressure, but the brake fluid will eat any regular hose you put on. We sell the set of hoses, one is curved, one is straight. You cut the straight one into three pieces to fit your application.

Remember, brake fluid is a good paint remover, so dont let it get on your painted surfaces! For more info see the Jaguar XJS model page.
