Replacing brake fluid

Porsche recommends that the brake fluid be replaced at least once every two years. This is due to the fact that brake fluid readily absorbs moisture. Moisture in the brake fluid can adversely affect braking performance and may also damage the system, leading to costly repairs.

Replace the brake fluid using one of the procedures described later to expel the old fluid. Remove the filter/strainer from the brake fluid reservoir and clean it in new, unused brake fluid. Using new, unused brake fluid, pump at least 1 pint (500 cc) of brake fluid through each caliper to completely flush the system and expel the old fluid. Then refill the reservoir and bleed the brakes as described above. See 030 Maintenance for brake fluid specifications. Use only Porsche-recommended brake fluid.
