Re: A reverse brake bleeder

I have not used one but I did think it was interesting. But you could just about do the same thing with a good syringe and a lot cheaper.

This is the way sort of) that BMW fills the system in the first place. But I think they have a better unit.

I have recommended the syringe method when people have had stubborn air bubbles they could not get rid of. This usually does the trick.
