I had an EGT sensor break and drop into my turbo.

And of course they wouldn't pay for the labour to take my turbo off and inspect/pay for any potential damage.

After receiving my letter about the Goodridge 'recall' from Steve at AA I checked my hoses and ....wtf!!!!

Steve contacted them on Monday morning and faxed them a copy of my original invoice - I eventually received my new hoses on Thursday as they didn't have any in stock and had to make them specially

Lets hope these last a bit longer than the last set!

Well i got mine today direct from goodridge by the looks of it...

One problem is i sent my whole pack back so im missing my rear bits So i left a message on steves mobile to let him know. My own fault really. though to be fair James from Goodridge never said to just send the fronts on their own.

These ones also appear to be a bit thicker in diameter, have the doughnut bits on, a goodridge collar, and also some form of insulation over the braid as well, like some vacum formed plastic so that must help a little as well i imagine.

My driver side has been rubbing on the wheel arch liner and needs to be changed - they were already on the car when I bought it so guess I'll have to buy a new one.

Where can I buy a replacement? I only need one side. The passenger side is fine/no contact.

I'll check my folder of receipts for the car but I don't think I have this one. I'll have to contact JB.

Received my new ones this morning, so decided to fit them before going on holiday tomorrow. Thought it might be helpful to post a couple of photos, so that people can see the difference between the old and the new !

Before (with improvised protection)
After (with new improved protection as standard)
Old & New side by side

You can see from the last photo that they have certainly improved the protection against rubbing. The ends also look to be sturdier than before, although only time will tell on this . You can also see that the new ones are a little shorter than the originals .

I don't know if anyone will be interested but you can buy all the bits to make your own hoses, braided or otherwise , from Think Automotive, in Isleworth. link
They will crimp the ends properly once you've worked out the lengths and layout etc.
Major savings and not difficult to do, and good people to work with.
Mine have lasted for years without any problems.

If the car's losing brake fluid the likeliest places are (a) the clutch cylinder and (b) the solid pipes across the rear subframe.

*Any* loss of brake fluid should *always* be *immediately* investigated; slight leaks have a tendency to turn into big leaks; this can be terminally embarassing.

I have just ordered some braided hoses from RiceRocketuk (forum member and trades on ebay).

Good price for the hoses at £56. Goodridge themselves wanted £90. I am assured these are the 3rd generation hoses but will check them carefully against the descriptions/photos kindly provided above and report back.

Yes, I know you can't post in capitals but I want people to read this !! And if the mods notice it, so much the better.

I phoned Alternative Autos the other day trying to get a set of 3rd Generation (i.e the "safe", "uprated") Goodridges for the Coupe. They told me that these have been withdrawn from sale to the public as they were too dangerous. This also bears out my searches on other sites, saying that they are not available, etc.

Now we all know about the problems with the 1st and 2nd revisions of these hoses, but quite frankly, if they can't be made to work 3rd time round, why are people still bothering with them ? How can any benefit outweigh the risk ?

I know some people have them fitted (and properly) and have no problems, but again I thought this should be brought to everyone's attention.

It's been a while since I posted on here, but I bought some of the original Goodridge hoses.

One blew on mine

Luckily it was at the MOT station, but it still ruined my day, and bumper a sthe car was dragged onto a flatbed to get it home.

Very pissed of with the whole episode though.

I currently have the gen 1 version on my coupe. I have retro fitted some rubber sheaths with cable ties and I regularly check the pipes, but I would like to change them at the next service.

The pipes were already fitted to the car and I don't have the receipt, so I guess I will have to replace myself.

Would the gen 3 be worth it, or would it be easier to go back to OEM's?

I'd go back to standard hoses. If it's clear they are goodridge hoses then why would you need a receipt? Have you spoken to them directly?

No, I'll try that thanks. I was wondering if they would offer a replacent and would it be worth taking? You think going back to standards would be best then, that's a shame cos I 'm well happy with my breaks at the mo.
