Opel/Vauxhall Brake hose replacement
When Do Opel/Vauxhall Brake Hoses Need To Be Replaced?
Brake fluid is used in hydraulic brake systems on most modern Opel/Vauxhall's. The braking system increases the foot force on the brake pedal into pressure applied to the brakes.
Pressurised brake fluid travels through Opel/Vauxhall brake lines to the caliper where it forces the brake pads against the spinning brake rotor. Forcing the Opel/Vauxhall 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 Opel/Vauxhall 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.
