Faulty Brake Hoses Are an Invisible Safety Hazard

Some facts about brake hoses:
• Average life of a brake hose is six years.
• Brake hoses deteriorate from the inside as well
as the outside.
• Moisture is absorbed into brake fluid systems
through brake hoses.
• Contaminants in brake fluid act abrasively on
the inner wall of brake hoses.
• Brake hose reinforcing fabric deteriorates
through expansion and moisture.
• High operating temperatures in brake systems
contribute to the deterioration of hoses.
•• Brake hoses swell with age and restrict flow.

Generally. all brake hoses on a vehicle
deteriorate at the same rate ....
if one is found to be faulty.

Experience the Convenience of
Custom-made Brake Hoses

• Any hydraulic brake and clutch
hose to suit any type of vehicle
(In some cases a sample will be needed).

• All hoses compliant to SAE J1401
and DOT Standard FMVSSI06

• Every hose pressure tested to
3000 p.s.i.

• Original equipment quality


Handy Tips & Information

The most effective way to look for faulty brake hoses is to check them when they are under extreme pressure.


Imagine brake hoses as arteries in the human body.

A person could live a normal life with hard and restricted arteries, but it's when they exert their heart under stress that symptoms arise. The same applies to brake hoses. Brake hoses could appear "OK," but when they are subjected to extreme pressure in an emergency, they need to be in good condition to handle the sudden stress.

Most booster-assisted braking systems can reach pressures of approximately 1500 p.s.i.

Visual Inspection of Hose and Installation

Things to look for.

1. Cracks on the outer skin of the hose. (May need to bend hose for this test)

2. Blisters or bubbles in the hose.

3. Chafe marks from the hose rubbing against something

4. Wet marks where the hose is starting to leak

5. Obvious bulging or expansion of the hose

6. Loose hose mounts or twisted hose

Troubleshooting Problems Associated with Brake Hoses

Usually associated with a hose that is old, soft and weak, which allows the hose to expand under pressure.

Usually caused by one of the front hoses being blocked or restricted.

Can be caused by a restricted hose(s).

Can be caused by a hose with an internal fracture creating a one-way check valve effect

Determlning the Length of a Hose

Except for a hose with a banjo fitting, all hose lengths are determined by measuring the extreme points. When measuring the length of a hose with a
banjo fitting, the measurement is taken from the center of the banjo bolt hole.
