Your Volkswagen model is expertly crafted with many safety features designed to keep you and your family safe and protected when you’re out on the road. But sometimes, it’s the simple systems that are most important, and this is true of the braking system. There’s no safety feature more important than the brakes, and your brake system will require new brake fluid from time to time. When that time comes, head to Bommarito Volkswagen of Hazelwood, serving Bridgeton, St. Charles, and the rest of the St. Louis Metro Area with exceptional service. You can find out more on this page, or go ahead and schedule your appointment at Bommarito Volkswagen of Hazelwood.
To answer this, let’s first take a quick look at what the brake fluid does. You might know that when you step on the brake pedal, the brake calipers squeeze together, bringing the brake pads into contact with the rotors to stop your VW. But it’s the brake fluid that facilitates this. It not only transfers the force of your foot from the brake pedal to the brake calipers, but it also amplifies that power, so it takes less effort to come to a stop. Over time, however, brake fluid will attract water to itself. This is because it’s what’s known as a hygroscopic fluid. As brake fluid takes on water, it will be less able to bring your vehicle to a stop safely, and braking may take longer. To keep yourself and your passengers from risk, you’ll need to have the brake fluid changed regularly.
Your VW owner’s manual will let you know how often your brake fluid will need to be exchanged; generally, it’s somewhere around 30,000 miles. However, you can also ask one of our service advisors to set you up with a good schedule. When you have this service performed here, we’ll drain the old brake fluid and replace it with VW-approved brake fluid that’s held to high-quality standards. We’ll also inspect the rest of the braking system to ensure that everything is as it should be.
