Approximately time in half a year, having lifted the car, check all flexible hoses connecting steel tubes of hydraulic contours to brake mechanisms of wheels for existence of cracks, signs of damage of a protective cover, traces of leak of liquid, swellings and other damages. Hoses are a critical and most vulnerable component of the brake system therefore them it has to be examined with all care – use a pocket small lamp and a small mirror. At identification of any doubtful signs the suspected hose is subject to replacement.
2. When replacing brake lines it is necessary to pay special attention to selection of replaceable components. It is not necessary to install to the hydraulic highway the brake system the copper tubes not capable to sustain the efforts developed in contours at all.
