Brake Hoses are often overlooked for fatigue and wear during servicing and tend only to be replaced after failing or leaking. Once a brake hose shows any sign of rubbing or cracking it should be replaced immediately. Over time brake hoses will begin to develop cracks and eventually break. However, brake hoses should not get to this point before being replaced. Brake Hoses can last different lengths of time depending on the type, rubber brake hoses can last up to 6 years, whereas stainless steel hoses can last anywhere between five to ten years. With such a spanning time frame some good warning signs to look out for include a soft brake pedal, the hose itself appearing physically worn with wear including cracks or bulging and in worst case scenarios brake entirely not working. Due to the critical safety of the hose, it is always worth keeping an eye on them when servicing a vehicle and replacing brake hoses which show any of the signs of wear and tear.
