How Much Does it Cost to Replace a Brake Hose?

If you’re planning to have one or more brake hoses replaced, it’s natural to look for some ballpark price estimates before you choose a dealer.

In this article, the team at BrakeQuip – specialist manufacturers and suppliers of high quality brake hoses, power steering lines and other automotive components – explain a little about the typical costs involved in a brake hose replacement.

Our Brake Hoses

BrakeQuip manufactures two main types of brake lines. These are rubber brake hoses and stainless steel brake lines.

Rubber brake hoses are the more traditional of the two, and are fabricated from durable, flexible reinforced rubber that is resistant to splits and bulges. The two braid design makes this product tougher without losing any flex.

Alternatively, you can also choose stainless steel hoses. This design kicks the toughness up a notch and totally resists any kind of expansion, wear or corrosion, while retaining an excellent level of flexibility thanks to its braided outer layer. They also offer an aesthetic benefit, as BrakeQuip offers stainless steel hoses in a variety of colours to match your vehicle’s paintwork.


From independent garages to franchise dealers, you’re likely to get a wide range of quotes when looking to confirm the cost of brake hose replacement.

It’s worth noting that the price you’re given will usually include the cost of the brake hoses themselves as well as the man hours required to remove your old ones and install new products.

Prices will vary depending on the make and model of your vehicle, as well as the quality of the products being installed and the level of experience of the mechanic or dealer in question – so the field is very broad, with some establishments quoting as little as £50 and some as much as £250[1] .

It can be hard to determine what is a reasonable price for a professional standard service when you’re contending with this kind of disparity.
