Hyundai Elantra: Maintenance / Brake fluid

Checking the brake fluid level

Check the fluid level in the reservoir periodically. The fluid level should be between MAX and MIN marks on the side of the reservoir.

Before removing the reservoir cap and adding brake fluid, clean the area around the reservoir cap thoroughly to prevent brake fluid contamination.

If the level is low, add fluid to the MAX level. The level will fall with accumulated mileage. This is a normal condition associated with the wear of the brake linings.

If the fluid level is excessively low, we recommend that the system be checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

Information

Use only the specified brake fluid. Refer to “Recommended lubricants and capacities” in chapter 2.

Information

Before removing the brake/clutch filler cap, read the warning on the cap.

Information

Clean the filler cap before removing. Use only DOT4 brake fluid from a sealed container.

WARNING

Do not allow brake fluid to come in contact with your eyes. If brake fluid comes in contact with your eyes, flush your eyes with clean water for at least 15 minutes and get immediate medical attention.

NOTICE

  • Do not allow brake fluid to contact the vehicle’s body paint, as paint damage will result.
  • Brake fluid, which has been exposed to open air for an extended time should never be used as its quality cannot be guaranteed. It should be disposed of properly.
  • Don’t put in the wrong kind of fluid. A few drops of mineralbased oil, such as engine oil, in your brake system can damage system parts.
  • To maintain the best braking performance and ABS/ESC performance, we recommend that you use genuine brake fluid that conform to specifications.
