Brake Hose / Brake Line for auto

Brakes auto parts: Brake Hose / Brake Line

Most cars use hydraulic braking system. Trucks also use pneumatic brake system. These systems serve to provide optimum distribution of braking forces between wheels. In both cases for transportation of hydraulic fluid or air brake hoses are required. Brake hose must be firm and sturdy, as any defect can lead to serious consequences. As far as even the use of quality material cannot guarantee the absence of defects, in Great Britain cars are required to have two independent braking systems (dual-braking system).

For a long time rubber was the standard material for the manufacture of brake hoses. Even today rubber brake hoses are very widespread. But this material has a disadvantage: it blows. Therefore, more and more often Polytetrafluorethylen brake hoses are used. They have surface stainless steel braid. Due to stainless steel and Polytetrafluorethylen usage brake hoses are sturdier.

If the brake hose has a defect, the brakes do not operate. The hose can fail because of wear, or it can be gnawed through by an animal. Therefore, brake hoses should be checked regularly. A sudden decrease of brake fluid also may indicate a defect in the brake hose. When replacing the brake hose, it is necessary to pump out air from the brake system. It is recommended to replace the brake hose in the auto repair shop. The cost of replacement is not high, so it is not worth to replace the part by yourself.

Brake Lines failures

  • component displacement;
  • working surface damages;
  • wear out;
  • twisting of the hose;
  • component clogging;
  • part breakages;
  • damage of the junction pipe.

Signs of brake hoses failures

  • leak of hydraulic fluid;
  • extraneous sounds at brake pedal pressing;
  • high temperatures of brake drums;
  • skids of the car when the brake pedal is pressed sharply;
  • vibration when braking;
  • lengthening of the braking path;
  • excessively free travel of a brake pedal.

Causes of brake hoses failures

  • violation of vehicle operation rules;
  • loosening of the clamp;
  • installation of low-quality components;
  • unskilled or untimely braking system service;
  • thermal influence;
  • use of non-fitting or low-quality hydraulic fluid;
  • influence of chemically active agents.

Diagnostics

You need to carry out the inspection of a condition of this part every 50 000 operational kilometers. The optimum option is to  carry out the visual inspection of hoses every time when complex braking system diagnostics takes place.

By yourself, without having the special equipment, you will be able to perform only the visual inspection during which you need to pay attention to the visible failures, for example, to cracks or peeling of work surface. Immediately address to the  service station having revealed breakage.

Brake Lines repair and replacement

The experts note that it is inexpedient  to repair rubber hoses. Their cost is rather acceptable therefore it is better to replace them. We remind that replacement of rubber hoses needs to be performed after 125,000 operational kilometers regardless of their state. To replace this component, do the following:

  • disconnect the negative battery terminal wire from the battery;
  • remove a wheel;
  • take out a wire which connects the sensor of wear and the pad;
  • push out a wire end from the pad;
  • remove wires through holders;
  • turn off a hose from the braking system, holding an end;
  • take out an end and the seal from the bracket on a body pillar;
  • remove a brake hose;
  • install a new one and repeat all the actions in the reversed.

It is also recommended to concurrently perform replacement of a retainer spring and sealing ring. After the replacement don't forget to bleed air from the braking system to be convinced the works are done in a proper way.
