Brake hose washers.

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be doing some brake work on my Avensis soon and while I have the calipers off, I'd like to replace the brake line flexible hose gaskets.

Has anybody got the correct part number and/or the best place to source them?

I assume you mean the copper sealing washers?  Nearly all Toyotas use 10mm ID x 15mm OD x 1mm thick.  You can buy them from brake factors or get a bag from Amazon or Ebay for a few pounds. Don't use any kind of sealant.

I've got copper washers that will do the job.  I just wanted to see if I could get the original Toyota ones without having to sell a kidney.

The best place to source them is the dealer. Around £1.60ea.

I'm just off the phone to my local Toyota main stealer.  It seems that if I want to buy the original I'm going to have to sell a kidney after all, they want £10.50 each for them.

I politely declined to buy them. 😀

Not sure what part you are referring to.  That's not the price of a single copper washer.  Maybe the double washer? They appear to be £8.51+VAT ?

Just out of curiosity, to see what these look like, I googled that part number.

It also fits an Aston Martin Cygnet (so, a heavily reworked Toyota iQ) for £3.22 + vat.

Assuming that that is an up to date price, then it is way below half price of the Toyota dealer item.

Who'd have guessed?  Toyota price is dearer than an Aston Martin specialist?!

They get you on the delivery charge, i wonder if the aygo part is the same

Edit. it's used on everything from an iq to a Hilux and no end of lexus cars - i wonder if there is anything aftermarket

Yes, that's the double washer.  I've never used them, just use two single washers.
