Re: Key Card Slot Feels different?...

If you change the breaking/cooling fluid and flexible brake hoses nothing bad will happen to your engine/brakes/brake cylinders. If you choose not to, there is a number of things that can go wrong: fluids deteriorate being affected by different temperatures, rust, gases can build up in the system, ...
