What is it?
Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid that ultimately transfers the pressure from the brake pedal to the brake pads compressing on the rotor. Hydraulic fluid is an important part of the braking system, because it needs to perform optimally in a wide variety of conditions all year round.
What does it do?
Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid that transforms the force that acts on the brake pedal to the wheels. Unlike air or other gases, hydraulic fluids don’t compress, which provides the key functioning of an audi vehicle’s braking system.
The hydraulic brake fluid in your audi vehicle is designed to withstand extreme temperatures without boiling or freezing. Audi genuine brake fluid is also designed to prevent corrosion and maintain your audi’s braking system’s flow capacity.
Audi genuine brake fluid is manufactured for your Audi vehicle, designed to offer the best possible conditions at all times.
Brake fluid will deteriorate over time, and absorb water from the atmosphere which reduces overall braking function.
Audi recommends that brake fluid be changed every 2 years regardless of mileage.
Driving and environmental conditions may cause for brake fluid to degrade more often. Consult with your service advisor at Audi Oakville to have your brake fluid replaced according to factory-recommended intervals, or as required for your Audi.
