BA Pursuit Owners Check Your Brake Hoses

My car is fitted with Brembos, however I assume there is a similar installation on all BA Pursuits.

I found the left rear braided brake hose on my car was rubbing on the leaf spring. The outer covering of the hose was worn although the steel braid and hose core was still okay. I am unsure of how much longer it would have taken to wear substantially, however I would safely guess that if your car is serviced this would surely be found by a competent dealer before it became a safety item.

My hose was replaced, and Ford (FPV?) did a check of production build cars and didn't find any with this issue. However, you can ease your mind by taking a quick look under the car for yourself.

Remember, AP's Pursuit is a one off early production rolling disaster.
