Hi I'm looking for information about the difference in flexible brake lines on early series 3 to later series 3 (2015) jimny
*is the left and right front and right rear hose the same, early to late series 3 ?
*i see there is a second hose at rear left and there is 3 short hose's from body to chassie not 2, is the difference to do with ABS/traction control or both?
Any help would be much appreciated
Neil

That's my working assessment of the situation, basically the same but with added lines to allow for stability and traction.

On our 1998 and 2007 cars there was a brake hose to the offside rear brake cylinder, that brake cylinder had no bleed nipple and there was a flexi pipe from that offside brake cylinder to the rear axle where a metal pipe went to the nearside rear brake cylinder. The nearside rear brake cylinder had a bleed nipple.

The 2007 car had ABS.

Around 2014 or so, regulations in Australia and the EC changed and required stability control to be fitted to cars. Our 2016 Jimny has seperate hydraulic feeds to each of the rear brake cylinders.

Therefore I suggest it was required for stability control rather than ABS reasons but the systems are interlinked.

I've since found out front right, front left, right rear flexible brake lines 1998-2017 are same individual part numbers just they added 2 extra flexible brake lines for the reason you stated
