brake fluid question
Can anyone tell me what was the original brake fluid spec for an '01 156 sw?
I'm just about kitted to do my first brake job in 20 years. The only thing is that I'm not sure which brake fluid to buy. The previous owner was fairly conservative, so I am confident that he would have stuck with original specs, and at 80k miles, there doesn't seem to have been any service except new pads. The brakes are fine now, and the fluid is nice and clear. If I just bleed them the old fashioned way and add DOT4 fluid, would I be in any danger? A bleeding gadget seems like an unnecessary investment.
