Jaguar XK8 Brake hose replacement
Why do Jaguar XK8 brake hoses need to be replaced?
Brake fluid is used in hydraulic brake systems on most modern vehicles. The braking system increases the foot force on the brake pedal into pressure applied to the brakes.
Pressurised brake fluid travels through Jaguar XK8 brake lines to the caliper where it forces the brake pads against the spinning brake rotor. Forcing the vehicle to slow down or stop.
Your vehicle will have brake lines and or hoses to carry the brake fluid to and from your brake calipers. Since the brake lines/hoses have to withstand pressurised brake fluid you will want them to be in good condition.
If Jaguar XK8 brake lines or hoses get damaged, leak or break it will affect the pressure on the caliper and the brakes may not work at all.
Over time brake lines/hoses can wear out or get damaged. You may notice the brake hoses are hard, dry and cracked or you have a brake fluid leak, this is when the brake hoses will most likely need to be replaced. AutoGuru will be there for you when the time comes to have them replaced.
