Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Brake lines

Repairing brake lines
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.
The use of flanging tool V.A.G. 1356 is not permitted due to the coating and the diameter of the black brake lines.
  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.
