    Brake Fluid Type And Quantity - 04 Plate

    Hi,

    What type of brake fluid is used on 2004 2.0TDI A3?
    Dot 3? Dot 4?
    Do you use any particular brands?
    How much of it is needed when changing?

    Thanks!

    Around 1.5L if you are also doing an ESP/ABS unit flush through diagnostics.
    I would recommend using OEM fluid only.
