THE IMPORTANT FUNCTION OF BRAKE FLUID
One of the most important components to your vehicle’s braking system is brake fluid, also known as hydraulic fluid. It’s a non-compressible substance contained within the brake lines that enables your wheels to stop when you press down on the brake pedal.
Because brake fluid can begin to decompose after exposure to moisture in the air, periodically draining this fluid from your braking system and replacing it with fresh brake fluid keeps your brakes in optimal working order. You can schedule a service appointment for a brake fluid flush at Land Rover Austin by contacting our service department.
We recommend you check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for a suggested brake fluid flush schedule. If it’s been more than a year or two since you’ve had your brake fluid checked, one of our friendly and knowledgeable Land Rover service department technicians can check to see if your fluid needs flushing and changing.
