    Brake bleeding??

    Hi all,

    I want to change the brake fluid in my cab turbo to the one that Courtenay sell.

    Just wondered how i should bleed the old fluid out. Is it as simple as opening the bleed nipples and pressing the brake pedal till all the fluid is gone and then fill up with new fluid and bleed again for air bubbles?

    Cheers

    Minty

    Thumbs Up changing fluid

    Hi
    I have changed fluid before on other cars, the best way I found was to slacken off bleed screw on each cylinder, and allow the fluid to be pushed out, possibly at the farthest point from the master cylinder, being the last.

    good luck.
    With Luck it will go OK, but in the end we can only hope.

    so its okay to bleed the system dry and refill after with new fluid? There was a mechanic that told me you can loose the pedal by bleeding it dry and ive been worried since.

    Just keep bleeding as you would, topping up the the fluid till you have new clean fluid pumping out of all four nipples, Paul

    well it will be like when the car was new, eventually it will push out the air on all parts of the system.
