Chrysler Sebring Rear Brake Hose
About rear brake hose
The brake hoses are utilized through hydraulic pressure and brake fluid to provide a braking force on the brake pads. They are usually made of rubber or stainless steel. In order to allow the driver to steer and brake easily, as well as to maneuver obstacles, the brake hoses have to be flexible.
What is the purpose of rear brake hose?
A brake hose key concept is to bring brake fluid from the solid pipework on the frame to the brake cylinder on the axle. Since your wheel pivoting on the axle requires a flexible pipe to allow the steering to shift, a rigid pipe would simply snap.
How rear brake hose works?
The hydraulic pressure from the brake lines to the wheel cylinders and calipers would be borne by the brake hoses. Rubber brake hoses will flex, causing the tire cylinders and calipers to travel up and down with the wheels relative to the frame of the vehicle.
Where is rear brake hose located?
When your car has a live axle or two if it has an independent rear suspension, there is usually one hose at the back. Such hoses would run between the pipes on the front of the vehicle, as would the brakes. If the car has separate rear suspension, the same arrangement is used at the rear.
