Some of my vacuum tubes are getting old and a bit brittle. Where can I get some new with the correct color-lines? Any tips?

Hi Leonhard, thank you for this tip. Hmm, but they are glossy... but better than nothing.

Christian,

if you want to change the vacuum hoses I would recommend you "Samco Unterdruckschläuche" these are made of  silicon and very durable.

The only disadvantage is, that they are only available unicolor (in different colors) and are not like the original ones.

Thank you Jason, but they are still relatively good. But I wanted to think about the future ;)

I've got a dozen or so 5 and 7 port original comfort control vacuum hose sets that can be used for parts to splice in, or snip the ends and re use.  Price is $25 + s/h. If interested email me at jasonedge@nc.rr.com .

Well, they are still ok. I cut some of the ends and they are quite tight again, but the one to the vacuum switch for the climate control is veeery short now and not the best.

I think I read that Jason has a few used sets, but finding new ones could turn into a long project. Have you tried cutting the ends off or are the tubes brittle along the whole length?
