Mercedes-Benz pioneered many life-saving technologies. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP ®), Lane Keeping Assist, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST and radar-guided cruise control: each of these features relies on the braking system. Every time the brake pedal is applied by the driver or automatically activated by the various electronic safety systems, the brakes need to react instantly and the right brake fluid is vital for this to occur.
Even a millisecond delay in braking response due to incorrect brake fluid, can negatively impact on braking distances meaning the difference between being involved in a collision or not.
To ensure that these critical safety systems are operating effectively, always insist that your repairer uses Mercedes-Benz Genuine Brake Fluid, specification MB 331.0 (part number A 000 989 08 07 xx) in your Mercedes-Benz.
There are many brands of brake fluid on the market, including European brands, however our brake fluid is the only brake fluid approved by Mercedes-Benz for use in Mercedes-Benz Cars, Vans and Trucks.
