They are available at most auto supply stores. I replaced mine with ones that I got at Pepboys.

Good Luck,
Kevin

IIRC, seems that they are m10 x 1.0 pitch.
If that isn't correct I'm sure someone will let us know............and I'll plead CRS.

The size listed on the Speedbleeders web site for the front (SB7100S) did not fit my '03 LT. I ordered a set before flushing the brake fluid only to find that they were the wrong size once I started the job. I haven't followed up on the correct size yet.

Austin,

I don't see that size listed on the speedbleeder chart. The correct size is the SB1010S.

Good Luck,
Kevin

Do I NEED to remove

Do I NEED to replace the grubscrews with Speedbleeders or bleeder screws to flush my brake system?

The BMW guys say I don't need to put in speed bleeders and actually came up with some good reasons why not to use them.

Ok??? I got the video from Paul Sayegh about bleeding the brakes. In there he says that the grub screws are for the BMW factory and Dealers.. we should replace them.

HE just doesn't say what to replace them with and since I keep hearing the word "Speed-Bleeders"
I just assumed....

So now the question is, Do I really need to replace those grub screws up front with at least bleeder screws?

Or can I use my mity-vac with the grub screws?
If I can use the mity-vac with the grub screws.... how do I use it?
Acck, I should have just taken it to the dealer. Bt now I'm on a mission to do it myself. LOL
