How To Drain Brake Fluid in Car Mechanic Simulator

Brake Fluid jobs are the most common jobs in Car Mechanic Simulator. Knowing how to complete this job is essential since you’ll have to drain a car of its old brake fluid before adding new fluids to check off this task quickly from Story Missions.

This quick guide will show you how to drain brake fluid in Car Mechanic Simulator.

Where is the Brake Fluid Reservoir Located?

In Car Mechanic Simulator, you will typically find the Brake Fluid Reservoir in the engine bay’s upper left or right corner and is almost always next to the Brake Servo assembly. The Brake Fluid Reservoir should have a yellow cap.

How do you bleed brakes in Car Mechanic Simulator?

The only way to bleed or drain fluid from your car’s braking system in Car Mechanic Simulator is by draining the Brake Servo Reservoir. Focus on the Brake Servo Cap, bring up the Pie Menu, and then use the Drain Tool to bleed your brakes. Refer to the guide above to better understand how to go about the process.

In real life, you must remove your tires and access the brake caliper, where a small bleeder screw is typically present. You must then attach a small hose to the bleeder screw and pump your brakes to drain the old brake fluid through the brake caliper.

Since there is no way to pump the brakes to drain the car of the old brake fluid like you would in real life in Car Mechanic Simulator, your only choice is to drain the old fluid from the reservoir and then replace it with new fluid.

Final Thoughts

Draining Brake Fluid from cars in Car Mechanic Simulator is one of the most basic tasks you will learn early in the game. After your first oil change or fluid swap, you should have no problems completing the same process on other cars in the game. Just drain the Brake Fluid or any other fluid before adding new fluid.
