Re: Brake Fluid - Quantity

I have checked both the handbook and the workshop manual and I can't find it listed anywhere but I think you'll need at least 4 pints to allow for wastage during the bleeding process. You can't re-use any of the fluid you bleed out and you can always keep what you don't use for top-ups.

Ooh no mister.

500ml should be plenty. I bled my 155 completely a few months back (I had new hoses) and the effluent came to about 1/2 pint (300ml).

Was 1L for my GTA, including a full rinse through changing to Selenia Extreme 5 from the standard stuff.
