However, I'd be highly sunrises that the factory would should the same number if the part varied. I've never seen that happen. So, noting that I am guessing,... they use a similar arrangement on brake lines to the calipers and a simple copper washer does the job. Considering the pressures on a brake fitting, I can't see how you need more sealing ability than the copper would supply. I suppose the only way to know would be to buy the seals at a dealer. But, I'm sure you are not too eager to pull it all apart again though.
