Default Caliper Brake line washer?

I dropped one of these while doing my front brakes today and can't find the damn thing i searched all over the ground and couldn't find it Anyone have any ideas where I could buy one? It's the one that goes on the bolt that threads in.

You can get an assortment of those crush seals at autozone/oreilly's/advance auto/etc...the ones that I saw were part of that "HELP!" product line/section.

The only problem is that you have to buy 6 or 8 that you dont need and cant use in order to get a pair that are the right size.

Before I did my brake work I called a local GM dealer and they said that they are not stocked separately...but if you want to buy a brake assembly, they come as part of that

Thanks for the quick reply. So are they just random individual washers in little bags?

hey man they are packaged in pairs at my local shop. They are crush washers for brake lines, that is what seals the banjo bolt to the caliper so fluid doesnt rush out. Go to and Local Parts Store and they will have them. take the banjo bolt with you so you get the right ones for sure. Also check to make sure it is not stuck to the hat of the bolt, or the caliper. that is a common mistake. they may be hard to see but 9/10 times they stick the opposite surfaces. IE: one on the bolt the other on the caliper.

There are supposed to be 2 crush seals ... one between the banjo fitting and the caliper and one on the bolt holding the banjo fitting.
