My 03 Brake Flush
I watch Roy Gregersen do a brake flush on my 03 a year and a half ago so it was time to do it again. It scared me a bit as he had vacuum from the pump to pull the fluid into the reservoir. And I didn't remember how he did it So with a little pondering I decided to use a bottle with twin outlets to go to the twin vent outlets on the reservoir, I didn't drain the fluid just hooked the lines and added fluid to the bottle. The fluid didn't run down the tubes till I opened, the vent on the reservoir. Started flushing, it worked great, Fluid really goes out fast. When it was all done empty, the fluid from the bottle, took off the hoses, thought I would have fluid coming out of the reservoir caps, but no the fluid came and it was at the same level as when I started.
It went well and was easy.
