    Best way is to remove wheel and then peel back inner plastic wheel arch cover - a few hex screws. Much easier and done in 30mins.

    Worked on mine..

    it only takes 15 mins to remove the front bumper

    the fluid you will need is green NOT red and is called central hydraulic fluid

    ...or you can do it from the top - just remove the airbox and use a long nozzled funnel and it wasn't too much hassle. No need to take wheel or bumper off.
