Check that all brake hoses are correctly routed to avoid chafing or kinking. Inspect unions and brake calipers for signs of fluid leaks. Inspect rigid lines for corrosion, dents, or other damage. Inspect flexible hoses for cracking. Replace faulty hoses or lines as described in 460 Brakes-Mechanical.
• Incorrect installation or overtightening hoses, lines, and unions may cause chafing or leakage. This can lead to partial or complete brake system failure.
' Brake fluid is poisonous. Do not siphon brake fluid by mouth. Wear gloves when working with brake fluid or brake pads to prevent contamination of cuts.
