One of the most important systems on your vehicle is the braking system. Routine maintenance is a great safety measure that every one should practice in order to make their car’s braking system perfectly working.

Here are the steps on how to replace a worn out brake lines in your car:

  1. The first thing you need to do is to inspect the brake line of each wheel and trace the line coming from the master cylinder The line material is rubber and holds up well from the standpoint of chemical stability to the brake fluid. Rubber lines need extremely close inspection as damage or wear may be difficult to see.
  2. TIP: At the first sign of wear, have the brake line replaced. It is a good practice to change all the brake lines at the same time.
  3. Measure the distance for each brake line. If you always replace all the brake lines when one line shows any wear, you can use rubber tubing as the replacement lines. However, if you are not going to replace all of them, then you should definitely replace the lines with stainless steel lines.
  4. Begin at the master cylinder. As you are disconnecting the old brake line, make the new connection with the replacement hose. Follow the path of each of the four lines all the way to the wheel and the end of the brake line.
  5. The final step is to bleed each brake line to remove all the air and refill the system with brake fluid. Remember: Test your brakes before taking it out for a drive.
