Vehicle Brakes Repair & Service High Wycombe
Brake fluid is hydroscopic and absorbs water from the atmosphere. As the water content in the brake fluid increases, the boiling point of the fluid decreases, making it easier for the braking fluid to vaporise, becoming a gas which cannot perform in the same way as a liquid.
This means that your braking ability will be dramatically compromised if your brake fluid is contaminated by water. Most manufacturers recommend a brake fluid change every two years.
