Why is brake fluid service important?
Braking systems in vehicles rely on closed hydraulic lines filled with fluid that helps transfer the movement of your foot on your brake pedal to turn on the brake pads and therefore stop your vehicle.
Most brake fluid is highly hygroscopic, which is to say that it absorbs moisture from the outer world in normal situations. This can allow moisture to enter a system largely made up of specialized metal elements and cause unnecessary corrosion to delicate braking components such as those relating to the anti-lock braking system (ABS).
To prevent unnecessary wear-and-tear on these frequently expensive parts, brake fluid has natural additives included to inhibit corrosion. These additives can break down or get used up over time; combined with moisture pulled into the brake fluid, this means that your brake fluid loses efficiency and can cause costly damages if not properly serviced.
