165. The following are major defects in a hydraulic braking system:
(1)  a flexible line that is worn to the second braid or that bulges when under pressure;
(2)  the level of the fluid in the reservoir of the master cylinder that is lower than one quarter of the maximum level specified by the manufacturer;
(3)  the brake fluid leaks along the system, excluding oozing, whether or not the service brake is applied;
(4)  a pedal that has to be depressed several times to pressurize the circuit;
(5)  a brake pedal that reaches the floor within less than 10 seconds when a force of about 550 newtons is applied;
(6)  the travel of the brake pedal that exceeds 80% of the total possible travel; and
(7)  a power brake that does not work. When the engine is off, the power brake is not able to assist the driver for a brake application.

(1)  a flexible line that bulges when under pressure;
(2)  the level of the fluid in the master cylinder that is lower than one quarter of the normal level;
(3)  the brake fluid leaks along the system, excluding oozing, when the service brake is applied;
(4)  a pedal that has to be depressed several times to pressurize the circuit;
(5)  a brake pedal that reaches the floor within less than 10 seconds when a force of about 550 newtons is applied;
(6)  the travel of the brake pedal that exceeds 80% of the total possible travel; and
(7)  a power brake that does not work or that is of no help for the driver when he applies the brakes with the engine off.
