Product Description


Most damage and failure that occurs in brake hydraulics is caused by microscopic suspended water droplets in the brake fluid. When these droplets become rusty water it causes the brake fluid to turn brown (no it isn't burned) and when the droplets get warm enough to covert into steam they cause soft brake pedal or total failure. Regular maintenance (flushing) of the brake system is the only way to prevent this situation and one of the most cost effective things you can do to extend the life of your brake system.

ESI6 for all Volvo passenger cars. Bosch ESI6 complies with the requirements for Volvo Cars technical regulation TR 33413395-002.

Modern brake systems, such as those featuring ABS and ESP®, are designed for improved performance to safely stop vehicles. With improved performance comes a higher load on the braking systems. These systems require a brake fluid with a high wet boiling point, low viscosity, and high lubricity.

As a vehicle system developer and the first to market ABS and inventor of ESP®, Bosch understands the need for a high quality brake fluid.

Bosch ESI6 is the next generation brake fluid. It exceeds all current DOT standard requirements (FMVSS 116).

Best value on the shelf:

  • First to simultaneously combine both low viscosity and high wet boiling point at its operation
  • Longer lasting: 100% longer than DOT 3, 50% longer than DOT 4, and 10% longer than DOT 5.1 (with 30% lower viscosity)
  • ESI coverage includes the majority of all brake systems launched since 1990; Use with DOT 3, DOT 4, or DOT 5.1; Coverage excludes DOT 5 silicone based brake fluid which is limited to military and racing applications
  • Excellent lubricity properties to prevent wear of components in the brake system and reduce noise
  • One size fits all: As Bosch ESI6 can be used to substitute almost all previously used brake fluids, e.g. DOT 3,
    DOT 4, DOT 5.1 (except LHM), it fits practically any brake system launched since 1990.
  • Bosch ESI6 helps reduce the stock of brake fluids thus saving storage space.
  • Featuring replacement intervals of 3 years, Bosch ESI6 high-grade brake fluids last much longer than
    standard DOT 3 brake fluids (to be replaced every year and a half).
  • Bosch ESI6 reduces corrosion within the brake system and its high lubricity prevents noises and wear inside
    ABS and ESP® systems.
