Hi,

I need to change my brake fluid and fancy giving it a go myself as it appears to be pretty simple.

Does anyone had a "How To" on this as I believe the order of bleeding is important.

Cheers

Alex

Start far end near is the order for bleeding. So rear passanger wheel first, then rear driver, front passanger, then driver side. Remember to keep the fluid level relatively high in the bottle, because apparantly you don't want air bubbles cause its a mission to sort out with the ABS. I did mine last month, but a independant mechanic only charged around R200 (20 pounds) to do it. Follow this thread regarding which fluid to use http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/south-africa/291706-brake-fluid.html Obviously it won't all be relevant to you in the UK, but it does make for good reading...
