Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.
When should you replace brake hoses?
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.
Are worn brake hoses an MOT failure?
Yes, a car can fail its MOT if the brake hoses are worn, for example if they are excessively damaged, chafed, twisted, stretched or are bulging under pressure.
Is the brake hose checked during an MOT test?
Yes, the brake hoses are checked during an MOT test. As the braking system is a crucial aspect of the overall safety of the vehicle, the MOT tester will inspect every component of the braking system including brake hoses.
A brake hose which is damaged or worn out severely enough to expose the reinforcement will result in a fail. If it is slightly damaged, it can be a minor fault but if it is excessively corroded or chafed, then it will result in a major fail.
