Way to Diagnose the Brake Fluid Leaks in your Audi


Brakes are an important component of the car, you need to ensure that the brake system is in good condition for keeping it safe and enhancing its lifespan.


The braking system of the Audi is failed due to several reasons and the common among them are the malfunctioned brake fluid leak.


The brake system of the Audi is generally made up of four parts such as the brake lines, brake master cylinders, front brake calipers, and the rear brake calipers.


When you found a puddle of brake fluid on the ground, then make sure that the brake calipers of the car are leaking oil.


The following points help you to diagnose the brake fluid leaks in your Audi smoothly and more precisely.

When you push down the brake pedal to slow down or stop the car, if you feel mushy, spongy, soft or squishy brake pedal, then the air getting trapped in the brake lines.


To function properly, the brake lines need a proper amount of full brake fluid. Due to the leaks, the brake fluid is low and the air enters the brake lines and causes stopping issues.


Illuminated warning lights

It clearly indicates that your Audi doesn't have enough brake fluid in the lines. So, in these cases slowly apply the emergency brakes by downshifting the gears.


Puddled brake fluid

The poor braking performance of the car can be attributed to several issues in different parts such as brake pads, calipers, and rotors due to brake fluid leaks.


If you notice that your car will take too much time to stop, then first check the brake fluid reservoir. If the reservoir is not full, then inspect the car for leakages.
