Brakes: stop vehicle and check brake fluid level

Stop the vehicle and check the brake fluid level.

Changing the brake fluid

Brake fluid should be changed at regular intervals.

Have the brake fluid changed by an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility. The authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility will inform you of the replacement intervals.

WARNING

  • If the brake fluid level is below the MIN marking, it can impair the braking effect and driving safety, which increase the risk of an accident. Do not continue driving. See an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility for assistance.
  • If the brake fluid is old, bubbles may form in the brake system during heavy braking. This could impair braking performance and driving safety, which increases the risk of an accident.
  • The brake fluid in your vehicle must meet the standard VW 501 14 and is available at an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility. If this brake fluid is not available, another high-grade brake fluid of equivalent quality may be used, and it must meet the U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Standard (FMVSS) 116 DOT4 , Class 6.
  • Reusing brake fluid or using brake fluid that is not permitted for your vehicle will significantly impair the braking performance and can even lead to a failure of the brake system.

    The manufacturer of the vehicle is not liable for failures or damage resulting from this. It will also not be covered by the warranty.

Note

  • If the brake fluid level is above the MAX marking, brake fluid may leak out over the edge of the reservoir and result in damage to the vehicle.
  • Do not allow any brake fluid to come into contact with the vehicle paint, because it will corrode the paint.
