Brake Flexible Hose

The flexible brake hoses attach the rigid metal brake lines to brake calipers and/or wheel cylinders. This flexibility allows free movement in the wheels and the suspension.

Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Brake Flexible Hose

  • Pedal may sink slowly when braking
  • Visible cracks on the hoses
  • Uneven braking, such as pulling to the left or right while braking
  • Brakes may feel slightly applied or drag when the vehicle is moving 
  • In extreme cases, the brake pedal effort will feel normal, but the vehicle will not stop as it should

Brake Flexible Hose Related Repair Advice

  • When replacing a brake flexible hose due to internal blockage, all of the brake flexible hoses should be replaced as well
  • When replacing a brake flexible hose due to cracking, all of the brake flexible hoses should be inspected
  • We recommend having the brake hydraulic system flushed any time a component in the hydraulic system is replaced or if the hydraulic system is opened
