Volkswagen Brake Fluid Exchange Service

Volkswagen Brake Fluid Exchange in St. Louis Park, MN

At Luther Westside Volkswagen, we operate a service department with a team of qualified service technicians who have extensive training and direct experience maintaining the Volkswagen brake system with routine brake fluid exchange service. The brake system relies on hydraulic brake fluid to create resistance between the brake pads and rotors that ultimately stops the vehicle. If you drive a Volkswagen car or SUV and it is due for brake fluid maintenance or if your vehicle begins showing any of the symptoms of a brake fluid problem, we invite you to our service department in St. Louis Park for the corrective maintenance.

The Volkswagen Brake System & Brake Fluid

The Volkswagen brake system relies on hydraulics to create stopping power. Stopping force is defined by the friction or resistance between the brake pads and rotors. When a driver presses the brake pedal, it activates the master cylinder pump that pressurizes the hydraulic fluid, sending stopping force through the brake lines where the brake caliper clamps the pads and rotors together. The brake system's performance comes down to the condition and performance of the brake fluid as a hydraulic. The major limitation of hydraulic brake fluid is that it absorbs water that contaminates the fluid and its performance as a hydraulic. The only way to correct contaminated brake fluid is through an exchange service that removes the old fluid and replaces it with new.

Indicators of a Brake Fluid Problem

  • Brake pedal feels overly hard or soft
  • Brake pedal must be pushed down farther
  • Vehicle requires more distance to stop
  • Noises when brakes are applied
  • Brake system warning light

Overview of Brake Fluid Exchange

Brake fluid exchange begins with our technician draining the old brake fluid and performing an inspection of the brake system. The brake lines are then pressurized and flushed to remove the old brake fluid before the fresh brake fluid is installed according to factory specifications. The service also includes a complimentary multi-point inspection guaranteed to remove any lingering uncertainties about the condition of the vehicle including all primary systems and components.
