Check of a condition and replacement of brake lines and hoses

Approximately time in half a year, having lifted the car, check all flexible hoses connecting steel tubes of hydraulic contours to brake mechanisms of wheels on existence of cracks, signs of damage of a protective cover, traces of leakages of liquid, swellings and other damages. Hoses are a critical and most vulnerable component of brake system therefore their survey should be made with all care - use a pocket small lamp and a small mirror. At identification of any doubtful signs the suspected hose is subject to replacement.

Replaceable steel and flexible brake lines always can be got at firm car repair shop of the company manufacturers of the car, and also in firm shops of automobile accessories.

At all do not use as replaceable any tubes, except firm, specially intended for installation in a brake contour of your car.

At installation of brake lines watch, that they settled down on removal not less than 20 mm from moving or vibrating components of a body, a suspension bracket or a steering drive.
