I need some brake hose (long story). Went to Checkers and NAPA and Car Quest. None of them had it. They all said to go to my local (only one in the area) ACVW guy "Doghouserepair.com." Pretty sad when you can't even get some of the basics for an ACVW at the local parts places. I guess our cars are getting REALLY old. Sucks.

You are so lucky the parts houses did not have parts for aircooled VWs. Other than Valvoline raicing oil, and Bosch products most all the other parts are worse than the normal VW suppliers have and even with shipping more expensive.

Nope. It's the blue hose that goes from the master cylinder to the brake tubing.

look around PHX for a place in town that can custom build hydraulic lines, could probably find them in braided stainless steal if you want them to look good...
also, try 4-wheel parts, one in mesa and main warehouse in south PHX

NAPA has some multi-duty hose that is good to like 250psi, fuel, oil, etc. I would think it would work fine there. It's a bit on the thick-walled side, but a good worm clamp and you're in business! Wink

Any VW parts store / VW shop stocks the 7mm blue silicone brake hose. Do not use reguar hose the brake fluid will make it swell up and block the flow of brake fluid to the master cylinder or leak.

You should just buy a brake hose of the same diameter and cut it into the lengths needed. Any local parts store will have that and its all attached with worm clamps anyways. right.
