Usual fast delivery from MX5 Parts. I had the same problem refitting the hydraulic line that others have posted, I fitted the cylinder in place and then tried for ages to connect the pipe, with no luck. I took the cylinder off and the pipe went on first time, and then bolted it back on.
If you don't have one, and cant borrow one, invest in the correct brake pipe spanner, for £4 its worth every penny, saves you a lot of grief if the fitting is on tight like mine. my 10mm open ended spanner was too small and the 11mm too big??, and an adjustable spanner was just rounding off the nut, wasted over an hour trying to get it off before borrowing the correct spanner, which did the job in seconds.
