Time To Replace Brake Pipe

My local garage has quoted 2.5 hours to replace the front to back brake pipe on my WJ.

Does this sound right? Sounds like a long time to me but It could be more complicated than it sounds?

you had me confused for a second, use to calling it a brake line. All the same though 2.5 hours sounds right they will prob bend up a new line and have to bleed it but you can always count to run into problems when doing brake lines.

Yeah sorry,

We have pipes not lines! They said it was a complicated run, I've never had to spend that long on a brake pipe / line before.

Thanks.

if they use an oem part, it's just basically a fishing job.....out. then in ,bleed ........
but if they are making it ... they will remove the line for a pattern, then copy it, then replace the line..bleed
the worst thing is the second bleed ,,,YOUR wallet
it is wallet in the UK right
