W124 self-levelling hose fitting info ?

My self-levelling high-pressure hose is leaking, and instead of purchasing the Mercedes part (almost $200), I'd like to have my local hydraullic shop make one with industrial Aeroquip hose & fittings.

Before I take off the hose, does anyone happen to know the fitting size/specifics on both ends ?

You need to take the hose to the hydraulic shop. They will probably use your old fittings and renew the hose part.

FWIW, I had an Aeroquip hydraullic line made locally for $85 and with an 1.5-hrs. wait.

The hose is reinforced with a fabric-weave, and also covered in a spiral-plastic sheath for added abrasion resistance.

The hose chosen can take continuous heat of 300-F, unlike the stock rubber hose.

They (Trident Supply) took off my connectors and brazed-them onto hydraullic compression fittings which in the future will allow me to just change-out the hose .
