Hydraulic Brake Fluid 101

Brake fluid is a critical component of the hydraulic brake system because it puts the “hydraulic” in the system’s name. Brake fluid is an ideal hydraulic with a single major limitation – it readily absorbs water when exposed. Brake fluid operating within a closed braking system transfers stopping power generated by the master cylinder pump efficiently and effectively when the driver pushes the brake pedal. However, if a line cracks and allows humidity or moisture to contact the brake fluid or the fluid to leak, the brake system’s performance will be compromised significantly as the brake fluid absorbs more and more water or leaks out of the system altogether.

Exchanging Your Brake Fluid

Our brake fluid exchange starts with a certified technician and can be completed as a Volkswagen service Xpress at our Express Service Department. Our expert technician will drain the old brake fluid, perform a thorough inspection of the full braking system, and install genuine OEM brake fluid recommended by Volkswagen for your car or SUV.

Taking it easy on your brakes

The single most important factor when it comes to protecting the brake system beyond diligent maintenance is driving style. By taking it easy on the brakes using a few driving tips, our customers can help protect braking components including brake fluid. Here are a few methods that we recommend when it comes to extending braking component life:

  1. Go with the flow – driving with the flow of traffic helps prevent heavy-footed braking
  2. Decrease weight – carrying excessive cargo and towing heavy loads increases brakes stress. Decreasing weight is an easy way to protect the brakes.
  3. Brake inspections – By inspecting the braking system routinely, drivers can prevent system leaks as well as hydraulic brake fluid’s exposure to moisture causing defective performance.
