Hi all. One of my vacuum hoses has crumbled to pieces and it's only available in Europe. Can some of you European members of this forum help me with this part? I can pay with Paypal.

1991 BMW M5

Thanks,
Paul

Hi, I don't know exactly which part that is, but if it is a flexible rubber hose, can you not buy this vac hose from a hydraulic parts specialist? They normally come in metre lengths and you can cut it down to size?

Hope that helps.

Its not the standard vacuum parts that crumble, its on the brake servo, part 20 in the folowwing diagram.

I guess where its fored to quite a tight bend could be dificult to get it that shape yourself, but as gravy said maybe a hyrdraulic specialist can form a pipe to the right shape if you have the original.

my dealership has gotten parts from germany for my car, i can't see how they can tell you it's not available here, for a US spec car? Have you tried any other dealers or parts sources like bma?

Custom hose

I tried Pelican and the dealer but all of them tell me they can't get it from USA or Germany. They suck. I used a t-connector to make a hose with a 90 degree elbow from a cooling hose, but I dont like half *** solutions. I want the original hose :)
