What Does Brake Fluid Do?

Brake fluid is a critical component of the brake system. Put simply, it is a chemical solution that enhances the weight of your foot on the brake pedal, turning it into pressure on the brakes to bring your car to a stop. Without brake fluid, your foot alone would not be enough to press the brake pedal with the force needed to stop, putting you at serious risk of an accident in Huntington Beach.

Brake fluid needs to be of a certain quality in order to maintain its effectiveness. Over time, the brake fluid can become dirtied by contaminants, and it may also start to retain water — both are not good for the brakes. This is why brake fluid replacement is recommended on a routine basis.

How Often to Replace Brake Fluid for Mercedes-Benz

When should you schedule brake fluid replacement near Laguna Beach? Mercedes-Benz includes brake fluid exchange in the regular Service B* schedule. If you follow Service A and Service B as intended, that means you will be getting brake fluid replacement every 2 years or 20,000 miles.

If you put more miles on your vehicle than the average driver in Orange County, you might need to have brake fluid replacement more often. Here are the warning signs when brake fluid is low:

  • Soft or spongy brake pedal
  • Oily puddle under your car, near the location of the calipers or master cylinder
  • The ABS warning light is on
  • The brake pads are thinning — the thinner your brake pads get, the more brake fluid is being used, so you may have to get the brake pads replaced in addition to a brake fluid replacement
