I just had my car serviced and MOT'd. The garage said that the brake servo vac pipe is perished and needs to be replaced.

 

Where can I get one from, and how difficult is it to replace? Does it run down the sill with the brake lines?

 

Can is an NA if that makes any difference

I've done mine twice now.  Having not previously read that guide I did it slightly differently.  I made a hose joiner from an old bolt and linked new and old pipes together at the engine bay end.  I taped over the top of that for that bit of extra safety!  I took off the black inner sill cover and it was a case of push from the back and pull from the small hole under the sill cover until I had a big loop of the two hoses out of the tiny hole (Beware, cut hands and forearms!!).  I lubed up (Fnnnaaaar) the hose with washing up liquid and pushed / pulled the join through into the front compartment.  It is VERY tight and requires a lot of wiggling but I didn't need to remove the dash.  Obviously once its through a few tugs (again FNnnnaaaar) and connect it all up.  It's not too terrible a job to do solo. 

 

Hose from cbsonline although I believe elizP might have new hoses still available

I found it useful to open up the hole in the fibre glass part of the sill slightly to all you to get almost elbow deep (more Fnaaar) which helped manipulate the hose.

Thanks. I've ordered a new hose from elizP.

 

Removing the black sill cover worries me as I don't want to damage that at all!

 

I may just replace the perished bit at the engine end with a small section of hose
