9.11. Brake hoses and tubes



Approximately each six months, having lifted the car and having established it on support, it is necessary to check the rubber hoses connecting steel brake tubes to lobbies and back brakes, on existence of cracks, wear tracks, leakages of brake liquid, swelling and other damages.

Rubber connecting tubes are an important and part of brake system open to injury and their check should be full and careful. The small lamp and a mirror will be useful to you at carrying out check. If on a hose are appreciable any of the above-stated damages, replace it.


Brake hoses of forward brakes
1. Turn off nuts of fastening of a wheel, lift the car and establish it on support. Remove a wheel.
2. Near an arm of a body turn off connection of a brake hose to a brake tube. When untwisting connection use a cap wrench not to break a connection side. If the arm bends, hold hose connection by means of a usual wrench.
3. Remove an U-shaped clip from covering connection on an arm by means of flat-nose pliers, then get a hose through an opening in an arm.
4. On that end of a hose where it fastens to a support, turn off a bolt of a banjo and disconnect a hose from a support. Do not forget that on each side connections are two copper sealing washers – it is necessary to replace them at hose installation.
5. Remove an U-shaped clip from an arm of a rack of a suspension bracket and get a hose through an arm opening.
6. For installation of a hose stretch the end of a hose which fastens to a support through an arm opening on a suspension bracket rack, then connect a hose to a support, having twirled a bolt of a banjo and having established new sealing copper washers. Check, that the opening of a hose was combined with a support opening, then tighten a banjo bolt till the demanded moment of an inhaling specified in the section of technical characteristics at the beginning of this chapter.
7. Establish fastening and an U-shaped clip on an arm. Check, that the hose was not overwound on a way between a support and an arm of a rack of a suspension bracket.
8. Carry out a hose to an arm on a body frame, having checked, that it was not overwound, connect it to a brake tube, наживив a carving fingers. Establish an U-shaped clip, then reliably twirl connection.
9. Pump over brake system (see subsection 9.12).
10. Establish a wheel and acquire a nut of fastening of a wheel. Lower the car on the earth and tighten nuts till the demanded moment of an inhaling specified in the section of technical characteristics in the corresponding chapter.
Hose of back brakes
11. The hose of back brakes serves for connection of two metal brake tubes one of which fastens to a car body, and another to the back bridge. Both ends of a hose are connected to these metal tubes by means of carving connections and U-shaped clips. At replacement of a hose be guided by the instructions provided above (see points 2, 3 and 4). Do not forget to pump over the working cylinder or a support of a back brake after hose replacement (see subsection 9.12).
Metal brake tubes
12. At replacement of brake tubes do not use copper tubes. Get steel brake tubes.
13. Previously the prepared brake tubes, with already established connections on the ends, it is possible to get on a car market or in autoshop. Often these tubes are already bent for giving of a demanded form by it.
14. At installation of a new brake tube check, that it was reliably established in arms and between it and the sufficient distance was moving or hot elements.

15. After completion of installation, check level of brake liquid in a tank of the main cylinder and add brake liquid if it is necessary. Pump over brake system (see subsection 9.12). Carefully check work of brakes before the beginning of normal operation of the car.
