What is Brake Fluid?

The brake fluid is a type of hydraulic fluid. It is contained in the brake fluid reservoir, typically located on one of the back corners of the engine compartment. At City Volkswagen of Evanston, we understand the importance of brake fluid as it is critical to the function of the brake system. When the driver presses down on the brake pedal, the brake fluid allows the applied force to be used in stopping or slowing down the vehicle. We recommend you only use Volkswagen OEM brake fluid designed to offer optimum performance and reliability.

Why Does the Brake Fluid Need Replacement?

Even using high-quality Volkswagen OEM brake fluid will eventually require a replacement service. The brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it tends to attract moisture. The moisture can contaminate the brake fluid, making it less effective. The moisture can also cause rust or corrosion on the metal parts of the brake system. When the brake fluid gets contaminated, the fluid’s boiling point decreases, resulting in poor braking performance. If your vehicle has ABS, it can generate extra heat, further worsening the brake fluid condition.

Signs of Ineffective Brake Fluid

As a vehicle owner, you should watch out for common signs of ineffective brake fluid so you can get the issue fixed by a certified and factory-trained technician. Watch out for illumination of ABS light in the dashboard, grinding noise during braking, spongy or stiff feel to the brake pedal, burning smell, or puddle of leaking fluid under the vehicle. These signs could be an indicator of other issues with the brake system of your Volkswagen. At City Volkswagen of Evanston, we carry state-of-the-art diagnostic tools that can pinpoint the problem with the brake system.
