Simple checks to save you money and time – Brake fluid

With the cost of living soaring and most people needing to review their unnecessary spending we thought it might be useful to highlight some of the simple things that you can check around and about your vehicle. Some will save you money straight away and some will help prevent bigger bills later.
Spend five minutes carrying out these simple checks every few weeks – and certainly before a long journey or an MOT.

Brake Fluid

It’s hard to underestimate the importance of properly functioning brakes, so keeping them maintained is essential. Book in with us to check if your brakes are wearing low.
You can check the brake fluid level, but if low, don’t just top it up. Low fluid could indicate brake wear and/or a leak. If you find that you do need to top up, check your vehicle handbook for the correct fluid specification. Be careful as brake fluid is corrosive, and if you feel unsure then bring it to us to look at.
Brake fluid should be changed at certain mileage intervals – again, check your handbook for service details.
