    Cambelt being done tommorrow but..

    I am going to have the water pump done aswell, but was thinking whether i should have the brake system bled and the fluid changed, and the same for the PAS. Is it worth it do you think? I havnt had them changed since ive owned the car which is 4 years almost.

    Brake fluid I'd say is definitely worth doing

    My old stuff was black when it came out! and it made a difference with newer stuff, bled about half a litre through each caliper

    As for the PAS system I'm not sure about!

    PAS fluid is there for life, so never worry about that. Brake fluid I find needs done every 2 years at least (then again I'm very fussy about brakes).
