Samco do a silicone kit but you have to buy 2 kits to change every hose which makes it rather expensive.

Lots of places sell them and they come in different colours, 1st link I found so shop around.

As you can see in the link that’s all the hoses you get.

Rubber hose kit.

If you think how long your current rubber hoses have lasted you can still go through 2 sets hose hoses in how many years and it’s still a bit cheaper?

Just something to think about....

Crazyquiffs do a set for "All water hoses except for the small bore rad to expansion bottle" at £205.

VW Heritage do a Samco kit for £136.70, I'm not sure whether its exactly the same hoses as the crazyquiffs set, it doesn't specify.

Cheers Guys,
Crasy Quiff's seem best value fr the number of hoses you get and it's unlikely I'll ever need to replace them again!
