What does a Brake Line do?

A brake line (also called a brake hose or brake pipe) is a rubber hose that connects the brake master cylinder (and slave cylinders) to the brake calipers at the wheels. Brake fluid flows through the line.

When pushing the brake panel the braking system is activated, the brake fluid running through the brake lines will put pressure on the brake units at the wheels, in turn slowing the car down. The car will have a brake line for each wheel connecting to the central brake master cylinder that regulates the brake system.

How do you know there is something wrong with a Brake Line?

  • When the brake hose is brittle or hard.
  • If there is patch of transparent fluid around on of the wheels.
  • When there is reduced pressure on the brake pedal when braking.
  • When the brake pedal can be pushed right down to the floor with none of the usual brake pressure.
  • When the brakes do not work.

When should you consider replacing a Brake Line?

As most brake lines in the majority of cars are made from rubber they are prone to deteriorate over time. Rubber brake lines can become brittle and hard, causing brake fluid to leak out of the system. In this case, the hose should be replaced as soon as possible to ensure a fully functioning braking system. In high performance cars the brake lines are usually made of metal, in most cases one would see braided brake lines which are usually a little tougher.

Servicing the brake lines is key to ensure a fully functioning brake system. Always service the brakes according to the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer. If you experience trouble when braking, you ought to seek the help of an expert. Brake problems can, of course, potentially lead to dangerous situations.

What happens during a Brake Line replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the brake system.
  • Mechanic will establish which brake line needs to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will replace the damaged brake line.
  • 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.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will make any adjustments.
