Why brake fluid needs chaging?
Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture over time, reducing the temperature at which the fluid boils. This could result in increased stopping distances, reduced braking efficiency and even brake failure.
Brake fluid must withstand operating temperatures of up to 230°C. Over time, the fluid absorbs water, making it less effective.
If too much water is absorbed, the brake fluid can boil while the brakes are being used. This seriously affects braking performance and can cause the braking system to fail. A spongy feel to the brake pedal shows this has started to happen.
For all Volkswagen Group vehicles your brake fluid must be replaced at regular intervals to ensure your braking efficiency is maintained.
What happens when we change your brake fluid?
As part of a brake fluid service, our trained technicians will drain brake fluid from the vehicles braking system. The vehicles braking system will then be filled and bled with high quality approved brake fluid to help ensure your brakes perform at their best. In addition, your vehicle will be returned to you with an updated service history.
