Brake Fluid Change

Brake Fluid Change at HiQ Tyres & Autocare

Brake fluid is the liquid chemical solution used in hydraulic braking systems which enables you to be able to stop your car using the brake pedal. Overtime, brake fluid absorbs moisture and therefore the boiling point of the fluid reduces due to an increase in water in the brake system. Eventually, this will reduce the efficiency of the braking and that is why it is a vital part of vehicle maintenance. Car manufacturers recommend that brake fluid is changed every 24 months or 24,000 miles.
