No they only need copper washers when using hoses/calipers with banjo bolts.

On the mk3 they use a tapered/come shape fitting to seal them Go to the full post

Hi,

 

Bought a set of HEL stainless braided brake hoses the other week for my 03 ST220, and opened them to have a quick read of the booklet included and it states that when fitting I am to use the copper washers provided. 

My set didn't include any  :angry: 

I have contacted HEL asking whether the booklet was just universal and might not apply to my car, but they still haven't replied.

Anyone who has fitted braided lines to their Mondeo - did you need copper washers? 

I don't really want to take mine off and be stuck in a situation where I can't get anywhere, so if someone with some quick insight could help, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks   :)
