Brake pipe and hose check (Every 12 000 miles (20 000 km) or 12 months)

Periodically inspect the rigid brake pipes for rust and other damage, and the flexible hoses for cracks, splits or “ballooning”. Have an assistant depress the brake pedal (ignition on) and inspect the hose and pipe unions for leaks.

Renew any defective item without delay.
