Frequently asked questions
+

What is Brake Fluid?

Brake fluid, or hydraulic fluid enables the other elements of the car’s braking system to bring the car to a halt. The pressure of the hydraulic fluid enables the brake rotors to press down on the brake pads. The brake pads are then in contact with the wheels, subsequently slowing their rotation and stopping the car.
+

Does Brake Fluid need to be topped up?

Brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air and begins to lose its functionality and therefore needs to be changed every year or so.
+

Can I change my brake fluid at home?

It is possible, however having the job done professionally by a garage is much safer and more reliable. Garages replace brake fluid with specialist equipment, as oxygen in the air can contaminate the brake fluid if the job is done at home freehand.
+

How do I know when to change my brake fluid?

The brake fluid warning light on your dash is the one with the exclamation mark (!) in a circle with two curved lines or brackets on either side. When this light illuminates on your dashboard, you should check your brake fluid level, topping up if necessary. The level of brake fluid required for your vehicle will be noted in your car owner’s manual.

What is Brake Fluid?

Brake fluid, also known as hydraulic fluid, is responsible for the various components of your vehicle’s braking system. Without it, your car would not be able to stop when you push the brake pedal down inside your car.

The pressure of the brake fluid causes the brake rotors to squeeze down on the brake pads. They then make contact with the wheels, slowing down the wheel rotation and in turn the car itself.

Brake fluid is only effective when it is not so hot that it become a vapour. If it gets too hot and does become vapour it can create bubbles which would result in brake failure.



Why do you need to have your brake fluid changed?

Brake fluid doesn’t disappear however over time brake fluid will absorb moisture from the air and not work properly. Therefore, it must be changed and kept at an appropriate level.



How often should you change your brake fluid?

It is advised that you change your brake fluid every year or two but bear in mind it varies from vehicle to vehicle. The vehicle manufacturer or car hand manual would have the best advice specific to the vehicle regarding brake fluid change.



How to check whether you have a brake fluid leak

A leak in the brakes could be very dangerous, because without the fluid the brakes will not be effective.

Firstly, you need to check that the leak is brake fluid, it should be colourless and the consistency of cooking oil.

The brake fluid reservoir will be at the back of the engine and is generally a small translucent container by the drivers’ side. If it is significantly lower than the fill mark, it’s likely there is a leak. Another way to check is to look for dark marks underneath the car.

In any situation a brake leak is not good and should be repaired as soon as possible.

Leaks will compromise the pressure and cause the brakes to fail. The failure will simply happen faster with a bigger leak.



How to change your Brake Fluid

It is possible do it yourself, however many garages do it with a machine which is much more reliable.

It is recommended that the fluid is changed by a trained professional as the oxygen in the air can contaminate the brake fluid. The water vapour in the air will lower the boiling point of the fluid, making the vehicle prone to frozen brake fluid during the colder months.

The fluid becoming contaminated with water vapour can also cause the various components to rust which would cause the system to work poorly or not at all. It can also cause damage to the ABS system.



What symbol on your dashboard means you need a Brake Fluid change?

The Brake system/ Brake fluid warning light is the one with an exclamation mark inside a circle with two curved lines either side of the circle.

The brakes are one of the most important features on your car, especially from a safety point of view. Therefore, we recommend you get them checked as soon as you see the warning light on your dashboard. It is also important to consider that there could be several issues with your brakes, the warning light is not just related to brake fluid.
