Some things to know about Brake Hoses

How to know if your vehicle could be suffering from a faulty brake hose

  • A low or spongy pedal usually indicates that the hose is old, soft and weak, allowing it to expand under pressure.
  • If your vehicle is pulling to one side this could be caused by the front hoses being blocked or restricted.
  • A feeling of your brakes 'being on' whilst your foot is not on the pedal – Brake Drag – could be caused by a restricted hoses.
  • Intermittent braking problems could be cause by a brake hose being internally fractures creating a one way check valve effect.

Rubber brake hoses have a relatively short life. The most effective way to look for faulty brake hoses is to check them when they are under extreme pressure. A brake hoses could appear 'OK', but when they are subjected to extreme pressure in an emergency, they need to be in good condition to handle the sudden stress. Most booster-assisted braking systems can reach pressures of approximately 1,500 p.s.i.

Some Facts About Brake Hoses:

  • Average life of a brake hose is six years.
  • Brake hoses deteriorate from the inside as well as the outside.
  • Moisture is absorbed into brake fluid systems through brake hoses.
  • Contaminants in brake fluid act abrasively on the inner wall of brake hoses.
  • Brake hose reinforcing fabric deteriorates through expansion and moisture.
  • High operating temperatures in brake systems contribute to the deterioration of hoses.
  • Brake hoses swell with age and restrict flow.

Important: Faulty Brake Hoses are an Invisible Safety Hazard
