Which of the following can lead to brake hose failure?

  1. Improperly matched fittings

  • Stressing the hose during installations
  • Deterioration from heat and contaminants
  • All of the above
  • To determine

    The component that leads to brake hose failures.

    Explanation

    The brake hoses help in transfer of fluid quickly during operation without any frictional losses. These hoses help in transferring fluid to the wheels so that the steering and suspension system can operate freely without damaging the braking system. The material used in brake hoses are constructed with a multiple layers of fabrics integrated with synthetic rubber.

    There are many reasons that can contribute to the failure of the hoses. If the hoses fail, the pressure is reduced inside the braking system and hence, the efficiency of brakes is reduced.

    1. Improperly matched fittings:
    2. If the hoses are fitted with improperly matched screws and holes then, it results in leaking of hose...
