:: ECS Tuning :: How To Change Your Cars Brake Fluid

Manufacturers typically specify that brakes should be bled every two years, starting from the date the vehicle was built. For race cars, it may be necessary to bleed the brakes before each track event or, if the pedal becomes soft during an event, to bleed between sessions.

For many owners this is an often overlooked part of car maintenance. Fresh brake fluid has a significantly higher boiling point than old fluid, allowing harder braking without fade. Frequent bleeding with fresh fluid allows brake components to last longer. A well maintained brake system can help you avoid ever having to replace calipers, master cylinder or an expensive ABS control unit. The bleeding process, done properly, removes air bubbles from the hydraulic system, resulting in firmer brake pedal feel and more linear, responsive braking performance. Too much air in the system can be dangerous and result in the pedal sinking to the floor.

Over the years we've had many customers ask "hey how hard is it to change my brake fluid". To help keep things 'easy' we put together a little DIY to aid you in your next brake fluid change.

It's time to take the bimmer out of winter storage mode, part of that process should always be checking all of your fluids.
Brake fluid is a very important, yet often overlooked fluid during summer preparation.
Bleed your brakes, refresh your fluid, and enjoy your car.
