VW Bug, Super Beetle, Ghia And Thing Stainless Steel Braided Brake Hoses And Retaining Clips. Brake hoses are very important, if they are old and cracked your brakes could fail, if they are old and clogged this could make your car pull to one side. Bug, Ghia and Thing have basically the same chassis and the brake hoses are also the same for the model years except Super Beetle front hoses these are different. Also the clips to retain brake hoses to body. These stock length hoses are made of durable braided SS outer layer, then a barrier layer, then a Poly cover over Poly hose and are D.O.T approved, made with stock style fittings so no adapters are needed, it is strongly recommended that these hoses are installed at all 4 wheels, never mix SS hoses with rubber hoses on the same brake system. Hoses are made in the USA and are sold each. Clips are sold each. Kits also available.
