Car Brakes

Why brake fluid is important

Hydraulic brake fluid is an important part of the braking system. Over time, the fluid absorbs moisture from the atmosphere which lowers its boiling point and eventually renders it less effective. Therefore, most manufacturers will recommend brake fluid replacement every 2 years as preventive maintenance. When you use the Garden Village Garage for your car’s annual service, we will give you an indication of the condition of your brake fluid by finding out when it was last changed and by examining the composition of the fluid.

Brake fluid change, top-ups, and replacement

Your brake fluid acts as a lubricant, preventing corrosion of moving parts and allowing the braking system to deliver optimum performance. Changing the braking fluid regularly helps to maintain the life of the component parts and helps to achieve maximum braking efficiency.

At the Garden Village Garage, we carry out brake fluid top-ups, we will change poor quality brake fluid and give the braking system a thorough clean.

Brake Fluid warning light on your dashboard

If your brake fluid or handbrake light is illuminated on your dashboard, please call our team at the Garden Village Garage straightaway. The light can indicate that the brake fluid level is low and low brake fluid can mean that your brake pads are worn or that there is a leak, which can be dangerous and can lead to increased braking distance.
