Brakes and brake fluid

Brakes are one of the most important safety features on your vehicle. Correctly maintaining them is essential.

Servicing your brakes

Both the discs and pads of a brake must be able to withstand high pressures and temperatures to function correctly. As they wear, the stopping distance of your vehicle will increase. It is therefore essential that they are checked on a regular basis to ensure safe driving.

Checking your brake fluid

Brake fluid is essential for slowing down your vehicle. Brake fluid absorbs moisture, so when coupled with heat and if not properly maintained, this may lead to what is known as a vapour lock. This will result in a complete failure of your brakes.

It is essential that your vehicle has regular brake fluid tests and flushes to ensure that this does not happen. You can get your brake fluid tested and flushed at your local Lookers dealership. This will restore your vehicle to the manufacturer’s safety standards.
