Routine maintenance and servicing / Fuel and brake line, hose and union check (Every 10 000 miles (15 000 km) or 12 months)


Warning: Do not drive the vehicle until necessary repair work has been carried out on damaged fuel and brake lines.

1 It is essential for this check to raise the vehicle sufficiently enough to allow a complete uninterrupted view of its underside.

2 Working methodically from one end of the vehicle to the other, carry out the following tasks.

3 Clean the rigid brake lines and flexible hoses, at the same time checking them for damage, leakage, chafing and cracks. If the coating on the rigid pipes is damaged or if rusting is apparent, then they must be renewed. Check all pipe retaining clips for security and clean away any accumulation of dirt (see illustrations).

4 Similarly, inspect all hoses and metal pipes leading away from the fuel tank. Pay particular attention to the vent pipes and hoses which often loop up around the tank filler neck and can become blocked or crimped.

5 Inspect the underside of the fuel tank for punctures, scrapes and other damage.

6 If any damage or deterioration is discovered to either system, do not drive the vehicle until the necessary repair work has been carried out.
