    Default Brake bleed sequence

    Hi folk,

    Changing my pads and fluid tomorrow morning. Annoyingly I've forgotten my Haynes book.

    I'm using a pressure bleed kit and have done the job loads of times on various other cars, but not on the vec. Anything special need thinking about when bleeding the system on the C?

    Can someone please remind me what the bleed sequence is. I think it's rear left, front right, rear right, front left, clutch, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Cheers.

    Why are you bleeding the clutch if you're only changing the pads and brake fluid?

    Re bleed sequence. Can't remember the particular order, other than you start furthest from the master cylinder - lemme check something.

    There we go, beat me to it. I knew it was one of the rears first as you start further from the master cylinder, but couldn't recall what side! End of the day it's not overlay critical - you can bleed them in almost any order, you just may end up using more brake fluid to push it all through.

    The Eezibleed is definitely recommended.

    Best practice is normally to go furthest from Master Cyl first, working to nearest to MC. On some split systems, it is best to bleed diagonally paired wheels one after the other. Ie if it is a n/s/f and o/s/r, o/s/f and n/s/r diagonal split, then it is best to go furthest away from MC, then straight to it's diagonal partner. Then do the remaining two. Dunno if that makes sense lol. I know what I mean lol

    EDIT; Just as Jack said lol
