Bleeding brakes - Amount of fluid per caliper?

Recommended Posts

Going to bleed the brake soon. Anyone know how many ounces total to bleed from each caliper. Not using the blue Ate.

Also, how much should I expel from the clutch slave/master cylinders? Thanks.smile.gif

Just bleed until it is clearer than the previous fluid. Usually easy to tell and only a few seconds of time.

You just be able to bleed the whole system (including the clutch) with under 1 liter of brake fluid.

Go between different color liquids - blue or pink. This way you always know if you bled lines fully or not - when it changes color.

You need 2 bottles to put into bleeder, and second probably will not be used fully depending of how much of it will you waste during bleeding.

LOREN OR ANYONE. WHERE IS The clutch bleeder valve ? In the Bentley manual the pic is too close to tell.

Yellow and blue fluid is available to make sure you had thoroughly bled that old fluid.

Clutch bleed valve is on the slave cylinder near the top of the transmission. On a Carrera that would be left side on a Boxster - right side.

Clutch bleed valve is on the slave cylinder near the top of the transmission. On a Carrera that would be left side on a Boxster - right side.

The Boxster clutch slave cylinder and bleed valve are on the left side (driver's side on U.S. cars), high above and forward of the inboard side of the left rear half-shaft. You will see a sort of "wound-up coil" of brake fluid line to the left of it, leading close to the location of the bleed nipple. Follow that coil to the clutch slave cylinder. For another reference point, you can see the black cutout bracket which is the transmission support bracket. One side is bolted to the side of the transmission, the other side rests on top of one of the two transmission mounts.

Here is a photo of that coiled brake fluid line leading to the clutch slave cylinder at the top right corner of the photo. The bleed nipple is directly to the right, under that little protective rubber dust cap (you can see the inboard side of the left rear halfshaft at the bottom left of the photo):
