Calipers on disc brakes operate similar to bicycle brakes. With the pressure of hydraulic fluid, brake pistons press the pads against the plates. Brake fluid attracts moisture, becomes contaminated and compromises braking performance that may require caliper replacement. A test strip shows how well the fluid is protecting the brake system. The BG brake service removes all the old fluid and replaces it with new high temp formula Dot 3 or Dot 4 brake fluid. Brakes are your most important safety system so it pays to have them inspected regularly.
Brake fluid becomes oxidized and contaminated over time and use. Heat and moisture cause corrosion on parts and brake fluid failure. This causes a spongy brake pedal and shows up in discolored brake fluid.
The entire brake system is inspected for leaks, master cylinder corrosion, worn pneumatic parts, harmful varnish build-up, broken or rusted bleeder valves, worn rotors and drums and air in the brake lines. All old brake fluid is replaced with BG Heavy Duty DOT 3 or DOT 4 Brake Fluid. The result will be a longer lasting, more efficient and safer braking system.
