Renewing Brake Fluid

Recommended Posts

My 1.8 T-Spirit is now 8 years old, I've had it since new and it's now done 66,000 mls. I've always looked after it and it's still in a 'like new condition.

The only job I've overlooked on it is the brake fluid and I am going to renew it. I still have a Gunson eezy-bleed tool which makes this job easier.

Before I get down to this I would like some feeback regarding the bleed nipples and if anyone has had any problems in releasing them after such a long time. I will obviously do all the necessary beforehand such as cleaning and using release Oil but has anyone encountered any of these nipples shearing or are they pretty good. The rubber caps are still on them so the valve part should be OK although I do have some spare nipples in my workshop if necessary.
