    Renewing Brake fluid?

    Evening all

    Not an astra specific question but re-newing Brake fluid

    Whats the correct manner of completely Re-newing brake fluid? Is it just to bleed the system til its empty, and then bleed from each caliper furthest to closest to the master cylinder?

    or is there any other easy way?

    Should never let the system run dry, can cause air-locks which can be hard to get rid of, flushing the system with 2 litres of brake fluid, half a litre from each caliper in the order you mentioned is more than good enough
