Brake Lines

 

Brake Lines

Brake lines carry the brake fl uid and are critical to the function of your brakes. Without properly functioning brake lines, your vehicle?s brake system would fail to stop when needed.

What are Brake Lines and how do they work

How Does it Work?

  • A system of metal tubes that carries the brake fluid.
  • A fluid level sensor alerts you when levels get low.
  • The reservoir lid protects the brake fl uid from the elements.

How is it Made?

  • Most molded from polymer

Why Does it Fail?

  • Crack or damage
  • Fluid level sensor failure
  • Worn bladder inside the cap

What are the Symptoms of Failure?

  • Dashboard brake light comes on
  • Leaks around the base (grommets)
  • Cracks in the casing
  • Moisture getting into fluid

What are the Implications of Failure?

  • Brake fluid can leak, and if fluid gets too low, your brakes may stop working altogether.
  • Your brake system can fail if the reservoir isn?t replaced or repaired.

How Difficult is the Install?
