The hydraulic steel brake lines that carry brake fluid in your car are bolted to the frame of the vehicle. These metal brake lines must eventually attach to the individual wheel calipers — or wheel cylinders in the case of drum brakes — at all four wheels. Since the wheels constantly move up and down, or left and right in the case of the front wheels, the brake line that attaches to the individual wheel calipers must be highly flexible. Enter the brake hose: a flexible, synthetic, reinforced-rubber hose designed to withstand the 1,000 PSI plus pressures that occur when you apply the brakes. There is at least one brake hose at each wheel position, and sometimes two depending on the suspension design. At the end of each rubber hose are steel connections with seals to maintain a leak-proof connection.
No. Properly working brakes are always essential. If you suspect damage to the brake hoses or see leaks it is a good idea to have a professional evaluate your car’s brakes.
