34 11 7 721 664 SET: REPAIR BRAKE CALIPER - D=32/36MM (from 01/01) 0.25 1 $126.90

Just want to be sure it isn't a brake line. Have the original rubber lines already been replaced with Stainless braided the likes of Spiegler?

Would be a shame to have to do both if it was just a line leak.

Good luck checking that out.

I just did mine. $235 is worth the peace of mind knowing they won't explode next time I have to brake hard.

IF these are the black Rubber brake hoses ...AND.. If you do not have documented history that these were replaced at a certain point within last 5 years,
THEN replace all of these with a Spiegler kit for Front + Back (braided brake hoses).

I would NOT do ONE more mile before this is done. All of these factory black rubber brake hoses have failed within a period age of 8 to 12 years. In some case, at the worst possible moment.... in a few cases the internal damage (collapsing) has caused the brake to stay jammed after application.

If one has failed, any other of these hoses is subject to the same.... choose how / when you spend your money, but this is your life ;-)

Pricing out the individual replacement rubber lines from the dealer, I came up with $455 so that is a deal and far superior.
