    Brakes are all the same, use DOT 4 standard fluid.
    I always use an old turkey baster (like a big syreinge) to remove brake fluid from the resevoir before adding fresh fluid then bleed.
    Left rear then right front, right rear left front last.
    Do not use an Ezibleed or similar for the clutch (ok for brakes) you need the old 2 person method (open bleed nipple, foot to the floor, close bleed nipple etc) this is due to the CSC.
    Total system capacity is 500ml.

    Sorry left passenger side.
    The Vec c has a concentric slave cylinder, you need to actuate the clutch to bleed properly.
