What is Brake Fluid and Why Does it Need to Be Exchanged?

Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid within your braking system. Designed to prevent corrosion, it applies the pressure and force necessary to slow your BMW down when you press on the brake pedal. The brake fluid flows to your brakes, so if contamination builds up over time with normal use, your brakes can no longer move freely. This can cause problems such as uneven brake wear, premature repairs of braking system parts, and unsafe driving conditions. Don’t risk your brakes failing when a simple fluid exchange service can help ensure your brakes work as they should.

Brake Fluid Exchange Services at Melbourne BMW

For optimal performance of your BMW’s braking system, be sure to have your brake fluid exchanged periodically. At Melbourne BMW, our technicians can perform this service for you efficiently and correctly. First, we will drain the old fluid, which may have contamination and debris buildup. Next we’ll flush the system to ensure no residual brake fluid remains. Then we’ll add fresh, clean brake fluid to your system. Contaminant-free brake fluid is better circulated to the parts of your system that require it, so you can be sure that your brakes will stop your BMW when you need them.

If I’m Not Having Brake Issues, Do I Need a Brake Fluid Exchange?

Having preventative maintenance performed on your brakes regularly, to include a brake fluid exchange, is the best way to ensure they will function properly and reliably. The last thing you want to do is gamble with your BMW’s brakes. Having your brake fluid exchanged is similar to having your engine’s oil changed on a regular basis. It prevents issues from escalating to the point where costly repairs may be needed. You may not be aware of any problems with your brakes until it’s too late. If you’d like to have your brakes and other vehicle components checked out, bring your BMW car or SUV in to Melbourne BMW for our complimentary inspection. We’ll let you know whether your vehicle needs a brake fluid exchange.
