Brake Fluid


Recommended Posts

When changing the brake fluid is it necessary and/or advisable to bleed the system at the same time? It would seem that bleeding should be done at that time, but if it is not really necessary, certainly would make the job easier.

Thanks again!

Normal maintenance practice is to flush out your entire hydraulic system (brakes and clutch) with new fluid at least every two years to prevent the build up of moisture which will corrode some pretty expensive bits in the ABS and PSM systems. This process both replaces all the fluid and bleeds the system at the same time. DIY "how to" have been written up more than once, so do a search for the details of what you will need and how it is done; it is a simple and inexpensive but very necessary maintenance practice.

Thanks Folks, I knew that was the answer, just looking for an easy way out. Now I realize I have two cars that need the same service.

Thanks again!

Happy 4th!

Get yourself a Motive Power pressure bleeder and the correct adaptors for both cars, and it will be a simple project both now and in the future.
