To change the oil on a Tesla Model S, the main pieces of equipment our Delphi expert uses are new brake fluid, a pressure bleeder and the Delphi DS480 Diagnostic Tool.
How can I tell if the brake fluid needs changing?
First, there is the manufacturer’s recommended period between changes to follow. You can also look for signs that it needs changing, such as the fluid looking dirty or smelling burnt, the brake pedals being spongy, or the fluid level having dropped in the reservoir.
