Brake fluid, which we usually call brake oil, has a maintenance interval of about two years. It is very important to change the brake fluid regularly and be careful when choosing the brake fluid. If the brake fluid is poor, it will rot the plugs of the brake pump and have an effect on the braking effect, so if you run out of brake fluid, it is best to go to a specialist store to buy the original brake fluid, not to save money. The original brake fluid is very effective and can also extend the service life of the brake system.
Common brake fluid replacement methods
- Using a brake fluid changer
It works by injecting brake fluid into the vehicle through air pressure. The advantage is the operational aspect and it is not easy to produce air entry, but the whole equipment is more expensive and only 4S stores or some of the larger repair stations have this equipment.
- The original method, using a bull bar tube and a mineral water bottle filled with water, put one end of the leather tube in the water, and the other end of the set to put the oil mouth. Open the cover above, loosen the oil screw, step on the brake, see the oil outlet oil is almost gone, the person above refueling, fill up and then step on the brake, so repeatedly, until you see the oil coming out of the bottom is clear
- The most commonly used method at present is to use a machine to suck the brake fluid out of the drain nut, and then keep adding new brake fluid to the reservoir. Repeat until the drained brake fluid is clear and free of air.
