Brake Fluid Flush
You should never overlook the importance of clean Brake Fluid.
Water can accumulate in the fluid which decreases braking efficiency, increases the corrosion of brake system components and can actually lead to total brake failure.
Clean brake fluid not only protects your safety it also prolongs the life of your braking system components by preventing corrosion.

Cost of a brake fluid flush depends on vehicle type, and whether there is additonal repairs or maintenance required to complete the task. While we are working on your brakes system, we will also check the calipers, wheel cylinders, brake hoses, brake lines, and master cylinder for any faults or signs of wear that need to be addressed and advise you if necessary.
If you would like to know costs - give our friendly staff a call to discuss your car and get a quote. If during the procedure we do notice something that needs extra attention that will affect our quote we will always call you to confirm before proceeding.
The car is placed on the hoist and the wheels are removed in preperation, the next step is removing the old fluid from the master cylinder. We then replace it with fresh new, quality brake fluid of the correct type. Following this, the brakes are 'bled' and the new fluid flushes through the system, completely replacing the old. We will also check over the rest of the brake system for any signs of damage or wear that needs attention and advise you if necessary.
A brake fluid flush can be done as part of a scheduled service – but sometimes we might advise you need one outside of a regular schedule if we feel it's necessary. We are always happy to discuss the reasons why with you.
Checking your brake fluid colour is good, but don’t rely on it, just because it looks clean – that doesn't mean it's not dangerous. If there is water in the brake fluid, you might not see it, but it still might cause the boiling point to drop. Boiling fluid can cause loss of braking pressure or even sudden and unexpected brake failure. A visual inspection won't necessarily tell you if there is dangerous amounts of water in your brake fluid, only a professional boiling point test can tell you this.
Its recommended to change your brake fluid every 2 years and your vehicle manufacturer will have a replacement interval specific to your vehicle – still these are recommendations and so it is safest to monitor the condition of your brake fluid on a regular basis.
