Now I am busy with the brake lines. I managed to buy new copper pipes and front hoses. I am looking for cheap alternative to replace the rear hoses.
As I realised it has a not so common end connection. Are there any other cars whiches use the same or similar?

They have a bit bigger banjos (amongst other things) than normal, which makes them a bit harder to have made locally.
A new set from some that have them in store doesn't set you back that much.

First of all I collect information about the parts. I managed to save a lot of money so far...
Unfortunately my budget is quite tight so the more I save the more I can restore...

I was lucky enough since the previous owner had brought a set but not fitted, so I fitted them when I fixed the rest of the brakes.

Hi

Use braided stainless steel hoses, they are very good and last for years(unless you put a hose clamp onto them!). I purchased mine from these people

 http://www.earls.co.uk/earls/index.html

they make full hose kits for the Murena.

Thanks.
I saw that topic about Visa piston. I found a repair kit for Visa/AX GTi (Seinsa number: D4-1064C) and another only for AX (D4-969C) with 48mm piston. I do not know if the pistons are the same or not. I will try the first and will see...

Hi John.

Judt checked Earls site for the brake hoses. He shows two Murena kits:
CMATMURENAFRRC   MATRA   Murena Front & Rear Kit
CMATMURENAFRRP   MATRA   Murena Front & Rear Kit
Which one did you get and do you know what is the difference?

regards.

Hi Jon

Frrc is the stainless code and frrp is for zinc plated, I used frrc and they were very good.

Does anyone know about equivalence between Espace and Murena wheel bearings?

Don't bother.
All 4 wheels have the same wheel bearing.
This seller has them for good price.
BRT384 wich is same as QWB231
I mounted one and are OK.

Thanks. It is really reasonable price.
I also found QWB231 kit on the e-bay for almost the same price.

The guy at the spare part shop recommended me a German Optimal kit, which is originally for Espace, but he stated that it would be good for Murena. That is why I asked...

As far as my program tells me the bearing is used in Espace  1 and  2 as QWB-231.
Stay with the QWB-231 and  thereverified replacements and you be fine.

Repair kits for the rear brake calipers arrived, but they do not look the same...
Does anyone fitted one as shown on the photo?

I also have the new fuel pump. It is more modern than the original, so hopefully it will be more reliable too.

One more question. Is there any alternative option to replace the speedo cable?

This is a bit of a long shot but try pushing the seal inside out.
