Subaru Outback (BR): Checking the brake fluid level


Prevent brake fluid from coming into contact with your eyes, as it can cause harm. In case of eye contact, immediately rinse them thoroughly with clean water. It's recommended to wear eye protection when working with brake fluid for safety reasons.

Brake fluid has the ability to absorb moisture from the air, which can lead to a decrease in braking performance.

Frequent refilling of brake fluid may indicate a leak. If there are concerns about a potential issue, have the vehicle inspected at your SUBARU dealer.


During the process of adding brake fluid, ensure that no dirt enters the reservoir.

Avoid splashing brake fluid on painted surfaces or rubber components, as the alcohol content in the fluid can cause damage.
