Brake Flex Hose
Brake Flex Hose It is recommended using a flare nut/line wrench when servicing the brake flex hose. This wrench is made to grab the fitting more efficiently to avoid stripping the hex fitting.
Line Wrench Used for Brake Lines A brake hose can cause one of the hardest to find problems known to technicians everywhere. When a brake hose malfunctions internally it can cause a small part of the inner hose liner to become dislodged and act like a one way check valve that will either hold full brake pressure from getting a particular wheel or not allowing the brake pressure to bleed off. This condition with cause the brake to not work as hard as the other wheels or cause the wheel to drag and not fully release. Either of these conditions will cause a brake pull condition. If you suspect this problem use a pocket IR thermometer laser temperature reader. Drive the car for a short distance with repeated braking then park the car and use the pocket IR thermometer to test each wheel.
