are linked by a series of brake hoses and brake pipes containing brake fluid, so when you press your brake pedal the vehicle slows down and stops.
The rate at which your brakes reduce the vehicle speed is determined by the amount and duration of foot pressure is applied to your brake pedal, and of course the condition your braking system is in.
Whilst regular servicing will check the boiling point of your brake fluid to establish whether it is still working well, vehicle manufacturers recommend that you change your brake fluid a maximum of every 2 years if not advised to before. Changing brake fluid when recommended prevents brake failure.
Like all components, brake parts deteriorate over time and because it happens gradually, many people don’t notice the difference in their braking system. Having your brakes checked regularly will save you time and money by preventing damage to the bigger, more expensive components.
