Brake Fluid Change Ouestion
I am about to change the brake fluid in my 1999 LT which is for sale. It had a major service about 8 months ago, but I want everything to be fresh, so I can garner the best resale value.
My question: is it necessary to force the pistons back , as per the instructions, or does intermixing dilute the fluid in the caliper?
I've changed the brake fluid (following the BMW service manual) several times in the LT and recently found out that many mechanics subscribe to the intermixing theory, however I'm skeptical . What are your thoughts?
