Just flushed the brakes and clutch on the Boxster S


Recommended Posts

I thought I'd share this. I just flushed the brakes and clutch on my 2003 Boxster S. Glad I did, it was pretty cloudy and had some debris. I installed some Speed Bleeder valves on the brakes. Those things are awesome. They are one way valves so you just open them up and pump the brakes. Makes it very easy. I didn't install them on the clutch. It's too hard to reach.

Okay, I'll bite. What are they and where did you get them? Easy install?

Better than the Motive pressure bleeder?

Ha. I don't actually work for the company or anything. I guess it probably looks like a spam posting or something. I just thought some might be interested. Here is where I got them. http://www.speedbleeder.com/

You just unscrew the old ones and screw these in. It's very easy. They only cost like $7.00 ea. Makes bleeding brakes very fast and easy.

I use a pressure bleeder, but the speed bleeders do a nice job, as long as you're careful not to damage the master cylinder seals. Real pain the the *** to bleed the clutch, isn't it? My arm just doesn't bend that many different ways.

Yes it was. I had to lift it on the back driver side to run a bleeder hose through the round end of the wrench and attach it to the clutch valve. Then go up top and lay across the back of the car so i could reach back there and turn the wrench. It took me an hour of staring at it to figure out a plan. It was a REAL pain, but it's done. A good feeling.

How would you damage the master cylinder seals, pumping to hard?
