Brake Fluid Replacement

 

What is brake fluid? Brake fluid, also known as hydraulic fluid, is responsible for moving the various components of your Hyundai’s braking system and also prevents corrosion within this system. Brake fluid operates under high temperatures and extremely high pressure. Without it, your vehicle would not be able to stop when you push your brake pedal.

How long does brake fluid last? Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means that it absorbs moisture. It accumulates increasing amounts of water over time and as a result, its boiling point eventually decreases. The reduced boiling point of your brake fluid can eventually reach levels that will have a negative impact on your braking ability.

How is this corrected? Hyundai Canada recommends having your brake fluid removed and replaced with Hyundai-approved brake fluid every 3 years. Performing a brake fluid replacement involves removing the existing brake fluid and moisture out of the braking system and replacing it with brand new, Hyundai-approved brake fluid.
