When and why brake hoses change

One is never too careful with a maintenance brake: quick and effective braking can also save your life! Although there are dashboard lights that show brake fluid reduction, sometimes brakes can start to break even in unexpected ways. Normally, if there is a loss of brake fluid, the problem is the wear of the brake pads. However, other components may also cause problems: for example, brake hoses.

If the brake pads are not worn, but the car has problems with the brakes, you may need to change its braking hoses. Where are these tubes and what they are for? The scheme that allows the pump or grapple pump to be connected is almost entirely composed of metal tubes integrated with the wheel.
To connect these rigid tubes are available on the sleeves that must have the characteristics of the brake fluid. From time to time, therefore, loss of fluid can occur for the wear of these tubes. To check this, we need to get to know the pipes yourself, raise the car with a jack and show off the pipes behind the wheel.

Turn the steering wheel to the end of the race will give you a better view. An accurate visual inspection is usually enough to check the tube is: you can also help by touching the tube or by pressing a pedal while tracking certain points to find out if there is swelling due to internal damage.
In the case of leakage from the pipes, you can decide to replace the pipe (or even only a part of it) or to change the entire braking system, which will, however, be carried safely. It is also a good rule to change the pipes in pairs: if one of them has to blow, it is certain that the other will have the same need.
