It is well known that brake fluid is a very important aspect of your car’s daily operation. As you press down on the brake pedal, the fluid causes the brake pads to press against the rotors to slow your car down to a complete stop. Over time, just like with transmission lines, the brake fluid will start to absorb air, moisture, sludge, dirt and other contaminants as you drive your car days on end. No matter if you drive a Mercedes, Porsche, or BMW your car will need to have a brake system flush at some point in the cars life cycle to keep the brakes working at optimal levels.
What Does a Brake Flush Consist Of?
A brake system flush for Mercedes, Porsche, or BMW vehicles includes removing the existing fluid and moisture out of the system. It is the replaced with new, clean, contaminant-free fluid. By having a brake flush performed on your car, you are ultimately ensuring proper performance of your brake system so there are no issues while driving and it also increases the lifespan of the system.
Brake System Flush Steps
- Remove contaminated brake fluid.
- Add new brake fluid.
- Bleed the brakes.
- Clean any surfaces where brake fluid has spilled during the bleeding process.
- Check for fluid leaks.
- Inspect brake pads, rotors, and hoses.
- Test drive car with new fluid.
When Should I Get A Brake System Flush?
As each car is different, you will want to refer to the manufacturer’s manual for maintenance guidelines for fluid maintenance. However, common and good practice is getting your car checked for a brake fluid flush every 36 months or 24,000 miles. It is always good practice to have this service done by a trained professional as they will use the correct fluid for your car.
