About Brake Vacuum Hoses
Featuring a tough outer cover and a braided support, a brake vacuum hose assists in the process of power braking. Sparesbox features a wide array of brake vacuum hoses from Mackay Rubber, one of the leading brands in Australia’s automotive industry.
What do Brake Vacuum Hoses do?
As most cars have a power braking system today to reduce the amount of pedal pressure, the brake booster in such a system makes use of vacuum from the engine to increase the amount of force applied to the master cylinder.
Engineered for power braking applications, a brake vacuum hose is a flexible tube made up of rubber and a braided reinforcement for strength and durability. Vacuum hoses are responsible to transmit vacuum from the intake manifold to other places.
Why is it Important to Maintain Your Brake Vacuum Hoses?
Playing an essential role in your car’s power braking system, brake vacuum hoses demand close attention. Since they are made of rubber, they may break down, leak or wear out with regular usage. A leaking brake vacuum hose will lead to an audible hissing sound. In such a scenario as a preventive maintenance, it is recommended to replace the brake vacuum hose. Although it won’t post an immediate threat to your safety but will make your brake pedal extremely stiff.
