Information - Brake Hose

The main function of the brake hose is to transfer braking force with minimal losses. There is a great variety of brake hoses. Mainly, they differ in material and have both advantages and disadvantages. For instance, rubber brake hoses widen. At the same time the sense of braking losses and stopping distance becomes longer. Another disadvantage of the rubber brake hoses is that they are dependent on weather conditions, including the ultra-violet radiation. This is the reason why the material is subject to wear. Moreover, water molecules get into the brake circuit and as a result boiling point of the brake fluid falls. Thereby, braking force in the circuit is changeable.

As for the reinforced brake hoses, brake force is constant even under extreme loads. Moreover, they require no maintenance, and are not damaged by wear during the whole period of operation. Also, hoses of this type help to increase the efficiency of the braking system, as they nearly eliminate pulsation and reduction of working pressure loss, which reduces the brake pedal movement. Reinforcement of brake hose is made of stainless steel strings and is covered with polytetrafluorethylen inside. Still, the hose flexibility is preserved. As a rule, they are used in load elements of brake system, as well as in lubricating system of the turbocharger. Regards the temperature range of hoses operation it should be noted that they are able to withstand from 73 degrees Centigrade below zero to 232 C above zero.

Despite the fact that the brake hoses have reinforced sheath, the damage is still happening. In any case car owner should immediately address to the car workshop to replace the damaged part. If he has enough experience and necessary tools, he can replace the part without any assistance. Not to waste your time, order the part you need in our online store where you can always find shock absorber, injection valve or thermostat for your car. You will save not only your personal time, but also money as our website offers you original spare parts at moderate price.

What is necessary to know about brake hoses replacement: service life, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations

Life span limit of the brake system hoses is 100 000 operational kilometers or 5 years.

If the car is used on roads with poor surface quality, and emergency brakings occur often, necessity of new components installation may appear earlier. Usually, reinforced brake hoses serve longer, while non-reinforced components break down earlier and thus require more focused attention.

Usually, the brake hoses require replacement if they lose elasticity and cracks appear on them. Also, the components should be replaced if they are clogged or deformed.

Necessity of brake hoses condition check is indicated by lowering of the brake fluid level. Specific leakages near the wheels show that the system pressurization is failed. Also, hoses defectiveness should be suspected if the car changes its trajectory at braking, and if the braking distance is increasing. Moreover, increased travel of the brake pedal indicates that the part should be replaced.

Single-handed diagnostics of the components can be performed visually. It is necessary to thoroughly inspect the front and rear brake hoses and make sure that there are no damages. For more detailed diagnostics you should contact a service station, where the elements of the brake system will be checked with the help of a special stand.

To replace the rear or front brake hoses, you need to lift the car body with the help of a jack and demount the wheel. Then, you need to unscrew the nut, fastening the brake pipe to the hose tip. During this, you need to put a special cap on the pipe, which will prevent leakage of braking fluid. After this, you need to demount the hoses, remove a second tip, install a new one into its place and perform assembling in the reverse order. After installation is done, it is necessary refill braking fluid to needed level and remove air from the braking system.

Remember that the brake hoses, as most other braking system elements, should be replaced in pairs on a single car axle.
