Brake hoses and lines are the arteries of a car’s brake system. The brake hose is a multi-braided PVA hose reinforced to be compatible with most non-petroleum based brake fluids. A hydraulic brake hose carries fluid pressure from the master cylinder through a steel line at the vehicle frame to the brake caliper or wheel cylinder at the wheel. A brake hose must flex with wheel and suspension movement.
Possible signs of a leak:
- Spongy brakes
- Low fluid level in master cylinder reservoir
- Wet spots on driveway and/or parking area
- Dampness on back of drum brake or caliper
Brake hose replacement is recommended within 5 to 6 years of service and is required undr the following conditions:
- A slow leak in a brake hose can, over time, lose enough fluid to allow air to enter the hydraulic system which will increase the amount of pedal travel to apply the brakes.
- A hose’s performance can be jeopardized by an external leak, internal malfunction or age / deterioration.
- Internal malfunctions can cause a small part of the inner hose liner to become dislodged and act like a one way check valve that will either prevent full brake pressure from getting to a wheel or not allowing the brake pressure to bleed off.
- Either condition will cause uneven braking, exhibited by a “pull” to one side or cause the wheel to drag and not fully release.
Why replace if there is no leak? Rubber brake hoses need to be inspected for age cracks, bulges, swelling or other damage. Brake hoses must be able to withstand pressures that can range from a few hundred pounds per square inch up to almost 2000 pounds per square inch. If a line or hose can’t take the pressure and fails, all braking ability in the affected brake circuit will be lost.
