156 Brake pipes (a "heads up" warning...)
The front right solid brake pipe on the 156 is starting to be a problem area.
It is corroding in a place that is almost impossible to see, so can easily be missed on the MOT test.
When you look into the wheelarch area, you will see the solid pipe curve round behind the inner wing, about 50mm up is a pipe clip and the pipe is corroding in that area.
I had mine replaced during its MOT test this week, the previous 156 they tested also needed a new pipe and the 156 prior to that had the pipe burst during the MOT brake tests...
I'll try to find a pic to pin-point the area and update this post.
