    Default Full brake bleed

    Hi guys, already posted about this but now can't find the thread so trying again.

    Want to do a complete bleed of my brake system, including the ABS pump.

    Anyone done this using OpCom? Any advice for me?

    Did mine last year, simples..used easy bleed system. No opcom,no problems.I believe that it also bleeds the clutch system.Bleed nipples inside engine bay.

    TIP: Id spray all the bleed nipples in wd40 way before you try n move em.

    TIP:Before you try and undo the nipples,very slighty tighten them,this in essence cracks the 'seal'.

    TIP: Make sure that you have the correct sized spanner for the nipples,I also used a deep socket on mine.

    Done the bleed before, but I have a feeling that dirt may have ended up in the ABS pump which is causing the problems I'm having.

    I know you can use OpCom to open the pump valves and flush the whole lot, but not worked out how yet...

    i wanted a complete change of fluid so i released all the fluid at every bleed point!!
    Then refilled it, then and bled it, perfect but it seems i was very lucky! it only took about 500ml
