Hey,

Just wondering if anyone in the colchester/clacton area has had brembos fitted to their car and fancy giving me a hand? Will need to fit new brake lines to the fronts and rears too.

Cheers

i thought though with the brembos i have is its off with the old, one with the new, tighten up the new brake lines etc. keep the bleed nipple open and pour in new brake fluid from the top until it starts to seap out, then tighten up the nipple and do the other side Dunno

The brake fluid generally doesn't make it's way to a caliper, you need to co-erce it with the master cylinder... with GENTLE half strokes. If you are too aggressive you might end up damaging your master cylinder. I would advise getting an experienced friend to help you fit them. Smile
