1. Approximately time in half a year, having lifted the car, check all flexible hoses connecting steel tubes of hydraulic contours to brake mechanisms of wheels on existence of cracks, signs of damage of a protective cover, traces of leak of liquid, swellings and other damages. Hoses are a critical and most vulnerable component of the brake system therefore them it has to be examined with all care – use a pocket small lamp and a small mirror. At identification of any doubtful signs the suspected hose is subject to replacement.
