After 10 years of service I was told that it is wise to renew
the brake fluid . it is thought that after such time the fluid
might get contaminated with parts of rubber rust ,moisture
How it is done
You need a help of another person to do it properly, one
to bleed the fluid , the other pump the brake paddle .the
brake fluid reservoir consists of two tanks . the back
one supply fluid to the RL and FR wheel. While the front
tank supply the RR and FL wheels . the height of the of
the tanks separation wall is low ,so they both can be topped
from the same opening . the idea of the separation issue
is safety of course .
Push the brake paddle forward only ,at the same time
bleed the brake which is a 10 mm valve . this
will allow the paddle to move all the way down . it
should be held down until the valve is closed again .continue
doing this until the tank is almost empty .pour new fluid
and continue bleeding until the new fluid appears . Make
sure no air bobbles appears . No air most enter the system .
the required Fluid quantity is 0.5 L .Have more in case you
need it.
I started with the RL,FL this empted both tanks. Then RR
FR wheels . Before road testing make sure paddle does not
go down more than usual other wise air has entered the system .

a question on your procedure.

Your car has 100% ABS. ok?

So, with motor off, you bleed the brakes with old traditional method?

This is important for me, cause i read that ABS needs HISCAN command for bleeding brakes.

This might be optional really, cause its a simple way to make pressure and bleed faster, while ABS pump works full.

But i want to be sure , before i start, as my car is about the same with mine. You have also MANDO ABS.

If you did it with the old way, i will do it also.
