How to line up banjo bolt with spiegler.

Hey how is everyone doing! I was really hoping to get some help on how to line up the banjo bolt properly to my Spiegler in order to reinstall my brake calipers.
I keep trying to tighten it but itís fails to line up with the spiegler.

Do you mean you're having issues lining up the brake hose? I haven't looked at the hoses for this car, but isn't there an alignment pin on the hose end that fits into a slot on the caliper?

Is that really something you need to do? It's a hydraulic system so fluid pressure should go around corners pretty easily.

I was told I didnít have to, but I didnít wanna be careless about it. So I wanted some more reassurance.

The banjo head is designed so the fluid moves around the bolt, meaning bolt position is not of consequence.

the trick is to never tell the fluid!

Sorry I didn't make it back sooner, but it looks like everyone covered it. It doesn't need to be lined up. The fluid doesn't care.
