Hi,

I hope someone is able to help. I was working on my dad's car and unfortunately the rear brake cylinder brake pipe would not come off. I had to cut the pipe. I managed to get the screw out on the bench and have attached some pics.

Any idea what type of flare this is? I think it looks like a din/ISO

What's the difference between this and a bubble? And what tool do I need to do this? I currently have a double flaring tool. Don't mind having to buy something cheap. I am in the UK and need something in the next couple of days as car is off the road!

Regards,

Ross

Looks to be an ISO Bubble Flare, which is common on what the US considers Imports.  I would guess it is a M12 x 1.0.

This would be similar to what you are needing:

As an alternative, local auto parts should carry these lines in stock.

The bubble flare is correct.
You will need to bleed the brake line of any air.
If the brake line is too short due to you cutting it, then I suggest you replace it.
