WARNING - Motive Bleeder Leak


Recommended Posts

Gang,

Today I was doing the standard pre-track brake fluid power bleed with the Motive. Had it for 2 years, used it over a dozen times. Only put in 3/4 quart into tank before pumping. Noticed after doing the second rear caliper that the bleeder was leaking rights at the cap/hose connection, so wanted to let you all know and to preventive care before you end up with the mess I got.

1. Look at the cap from the bleeder that connects to the reservoir

2. The clear hose connector has a "pinch" metal band to secure the hose to the cap

3. The metal band had a very small piece of hose pinched such that it allow fluid to escape.

4. Replaced the band with a screw metal clamp (small one) and problem resolved.

Since this has not happened before, I am assuming that it worked itself loose over time and pressure. So wanted to let you know BEFORE you have 1/4 quart of fluid in your trunks. Lots of paper towels and kitty litter to clean those carpets, corrosive little fluid.....

Cheers

Izzy
