Now pop the cover off and this is what it should look like, but most of the time cleaner

This is a brake bleeding hose kit,

Its made up of 2 pipes although you only need one,
With a Non return valve one end
And a Flexible tube on the other

There is a reason why these are clear, its so you can see if there is any bubbles in the system, before the escape,

Handy if there is water in the system, you might need a good bleed through

There are other Kits on the market,

The small orange hose kits cost next to nothing but are VERY messy and normaly to short for the job

Some "1 man kits" Attach to the spare wheel to use air to push the fluid through STAY WELL AWAY They are SHITE, air is the thing you are trying to eliminate,
That and 36psi into a brake resevoir tends to make them explodeCrazy

So be carefull when getting one, they are mega usefull if doing alot of work to the brakes

Now the easy bit

Undo the fluid cap

Check that the fluid level is at MAX, if not top it up...

Undo the bleed nipple 1 turn, Thats all it needs

Now pump the peddle a few times, it should go all the way to the floor..

Now get out and check the pipe, to see if there is any bubbles in the pipe, if there is Pump again (remember to check the resevior)

If not tighten up the bleed nipple, and put every thing back togetherThumbs up

The white tab Will push down further, that holds the pipe on securly and will stop it popping off

Now the serious bit

Brake Fluid Is VERY dangerous, dont get it on any paint work as its also a very good paint stripper..

If you do splash any, lots of water should do the trick..


If in doubt get a friend to help as an air bubble, even the smallest slightist bubble will be enough to stop the brakes working effectivlyShock Shock

Brake fluid for our cars should be Dot4..

There s no real need to go to any other spec fluid, unless you know what your doing,
In which case you wont be reading this

HAPPY HUNTINGThumbs up
