What are brake hoses?

A brake hose is a flexible rubber hose that connects the brake calipers to the brake lines that are held in place on the car’s body. The reason for using hoses at this point is due the brake caliper being attached to the wheel and therefore is required to move with suspension and steering requirements.

How do brake hoses work and what are the components?

When the brakes are applied using the foot brake pedal, the hydraulic brake fluid is pressurised by the brake master cylinder and exerts a corresponding force at the brake caliper to push the piston out and therefore causes the brake pads to come into contact with the brake disc.

The brake hoses are made of a special non porous rubber that whilst flexible they do not expand too much when the pressure inside them builds up. At each end of the hose is a metal union which is attached to the end of the rigid brake pipe at the vehicle end and screws into the brake caliper at the wheel end.

Some brake hoses are braided with steel mesh to give further rigidity to the hose and reduced loss of brake pressure from expansion. The braided hoses are usually standard on performance vehicles and it is an upgrade that a lot of enthusiastic motorists have done.

How do you know there is something wrong with a brake hose?

  • If you have been advised that there is weakness or damage picked up from an MOT or service
  • If you have an obvious leak of fluid from the hose or its unions

Please note, if you experience any untoward characteristics in your braking, book a diagnostic inspection immediately and do not drive the vehicle

When should you consider replacing a brake hose?

As above, if you have any kind of damage or perishing of the brake hose itself, or the ferrules have become excessively corroded then replacement needs to be carried out straight away.

How common is a brake hose replacement?

It doesn’t happen very often, however as the vehicle gets older and the miles add up then the risk of cuts and perishing are increased. We would recommend that the brake hoses are replaced when a vehicle is 15 years old as part of any preventative maintenance plan.

How can I extend the life of my brake hoses?

There isn’t really a great deal you can do to extend the life of the hoses other than to give them a good wash down with a pressure washer occasionally.

What happens during a brake hose replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the brake system.
  • Mechanic will establish which brake hose needs to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will replace the damaged brake hose.
  • Mechanic will renew the brake fluid.
  • Mechanic will bleed the brake system.
  • Mechanic will inspect the brake system and will, if deemed safe, test drive the car.
