Frequently asked questions about BMW brake fluid change & replacements

Read our answers to questions about brake fluid change costs, symptoms and more.

What does a brake fluid replacement on my BMW involve?

  • Mechanic will inspect the brake system.
  • Mechanic will advise if other parts of the brake system need replacing too.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the brake fluid and bleed the air from the system.
  • Mechanic will inspect the brake system and, if deemed safe, test drive the car.

What are the symptoms of bad BMW brake fluid?

  • If you suspect there is any issue with your brake fluid or are concerns about its age or condition, book an inspection with immediate effect.
  • Whilst there are little outward signs that there is an issue with your brake fluid, you may find that your brakes feel less responsive than they used to.

How long will a brake fluid change take on my BMW?

A brake fluid change usually takes around 1.5 hours, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should you replace BMW brake fluid?

Usually, brake fluid is only replaced at the time recommended by the manufacturer. However if there has been damage to the brake system and components such as a brake caliper needing replacement, then it's best to have the fluid replaced as well rather than just bleeding the air out the system.

If you overheat the brakes on a regular basis then the fluid will need changing more frequently in order for it to retain its efficiency.

How can I extend the life of my BMW brake fluid?

As with most parts of your car, the less pressure you put on any part of your car’s brakes, the longer the fluid remains effective. If you carry heavy loads frequently, or tow a caravan for example, your brake system will come under greater pressure than it would otherwise and as such the quality of the fluid may be reduced by the heat being generated. Therefore, removing unnecessary weight from the vehicle will not only improve your fuel consumption, it will also maintain the efficiency of your brake fluid.

Also consider your driving style. Anticipating the road conditions ahead, keeping your speed as constant as possible, and thereby avoiding sharp braking are all likely to lengthen the interval between brake fluid replacements.

How long does it take to bleed brakes on my BMW?

On average it takes under 1 hour to bleed the brakes on a car. Ultimately, the time will depend on a number of factors like the vehicle make and model and type of braking system.

What are signs of low brake fluid on my BMW?

Some common signs of low brake fluid include:
* Brake warning light on the dashboard is illuminated
* Unresponsive brake pedal - or it takes longer to brake
* Noisy brakes or brake pads vibrating
* Discoloured brake fluid

What colour is BMW brake fluid?

New or healthy brake fluid is typically light yellow or amber in colour. As the brake fluid ages, it becomes darker and eventually turns brownish when it has come to the end of its life.
