    I have recently started driving a 2006 R.R. and have been advised about corroded brake pipes. This week the brake fluid warning light came on, this is after the fitting of new pads.
    Sitting with the engine running I pushed my foot on the brake and sure enough it went very slowly to the floor. The leak is in a long straight underneath the passenger side door that should be ok to sort but it is the pipes that I can’t see that I am worried about.
    Has anybody put their got any tips/advice for this rectification as I wish to keep running the vehicle.

    It cant be that big a job to replace all the pipework, over a long weekend.buy copper/nickel pipe ,a good flairing tool and a bleeding kit and the instructions . you will then know what you have to start with.

    As above - this should be a DIY job with the right tools, and the right pipe - known by its trade name "Cunifer" ...

    A search on here will find you some advice on which flaring tool to buy too :)

    Given the complexity of your chosen vehicle, IMHO make sure you are familiar with the correct bleeding procedure ( :D ) ... before you start ;)

    ( pun intended :p ). :D

    You might even find one of the online retailers doing a full kit for the car.....
