Car Brake Bleeding Services Hamilton

What is brake bleeding?

Brake bleeding is a procedure performed on hydraulic braking systems. The purpose of the procedure is to remove any air bubbles from your vehicle’s braking system. The old brake fluid is removed and replaced with new, bubble-free fluid. This significantly improves brake performance by increasing hydraulic pressure.

Over time, small pockets of air can become trapped in your car’s brake lines. This can result in your brakes feeling spongy and less effective. As more air enters your brake lines, the brakes become more at risk of failing.

How are air bubbles bad for your brakes?

Brake fluid is an incompressible liquid, meaning that it is able to work with your braking system to generate hydraulic pressure. Air is compressible, meaning that its presence in your braking system greatly reduces the amount of hydraulic pressure that can be produced. 

Low hydraulic pressure results in spongy, less effective brakes and can compromise your safety if the problem becomes severe.  

 

How often should a brake bleed service be performed?

Most manufacturers recommend that you should have your brakes bled every 2-3 years. However, a brake bleed should be performed if your vehicle’s brakes feel less responsive or spongy. 

 

How important is brake bleeding?

When it comes to servicing your car, brake maintenance is an area that should never be neglected.

A routine brake bleed/service can keep your vehicle’s brakes working correctly, allowing them to quickly stop they it needs to. This improves your vehicle’s safety.

A brake bleed also gives mechanics an opportunity to examine your brake system. In many cases, the air in the braking system can be caused by another problem, such as worn brake pads or leaking brake components.
