Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Assembly overview - flanging tool

The flanging tool for brake lines -VAS 6056- can be used to flange brake lines with an outer pipe diameter of 5 mm without damaging the coating. In certain cases, this allows sections of brake lines to be renewed at less expense.
  Note
Brake lines may only be bent to max. 90°, as they otherwise kink or display deformations which constrict the cross-section of the line to an impermissible degree.
Preferably separate brake lines at underbody.
The positions of the intermediate pieces must be selected so that they cannot chafe on moving parts.
Do not grease spindle; merely clean with methylated spirits.
Special tools and workshop equipment required
