Replacing worn-out vacuum hoses is a simple DIY task that requires little explanation... why shouldn't this be easy?
Chances are you found this page after driving to a half dozen local auto parts stores only to return home with a piece of fish tank tubing and a headache. Contrary to your local parts guys, metric braided vacuum hose does exist. In fact, we have spools of it in seven different sizes. A few clicks is all it takes to source the metric braided vacuum hose your German car demands.
To choose the vacuum hose needed for your project, measure a clean section of the existing hose or the body of the barb it connects to. Our hose is measured by the inside diameter (ID). Outer diameter measurements are provided for reference only. When in doubt, choose a size slightly smaller. It's better to have a tight fit than a vacuum leak. Hose is sold by the foot in continuous lengths. If needed, we also sell OEM style hose clamps and vacuum caps.
Vacuum Hose is sold by the foot
Our selection of vacuum hose is made in Germany by the same manufacturer used by VW, Audi, BMW, and Porsche. It is rated for vacuum, boost, and even use with fuel. The hose is a chemical and heat resistant synthetic rubber braided with black cloth for strength and protection. Fair warning: braid color may vary by size. Most braid is black, though some sizes are provided to us in shades of dark gray. Writing can exist on the hose braid. Check out the photo above to see what we're talking about. The difference is subtle but worth mentioning.
