The VW Brake System & Brake Fluid Maintenance 101

The VW brake system uses hydraulic fluid to transfer pressure generated by the master cylinder through brake lines into the brake calipers that clamp the brake pads into the rotors. This powerful hydraulic clamping action creates the resistance necessary to stop. The brake system usually functions as needed, but the brake fluid has two significant performance limitations - water contamination and leaks. Hydraulic brake fluid notoriously collects water if exposed that restricts its performance as a hydraulic - when the water heats up, it turns into vapor and compresses inside the brake line. If the brake fluid gets contaminated or leaks, you will begin noticing the warning signs of bad brake fluid.

Warning Signs of Bad Brake Fluid

  • Brake pedal feels soft, mushy, or must be pushed down farther
  • Fluid is discolored or contaminated
  • Brake fluid is low and needs to be topped off
  • Vehicle needs more distance to stop
  • Dashboard warning light - check engine or brake system lights
