Re: Brake fluid Megane MK3

From reading(unlinkable) .the renault method is to pressurise the circuit and drain all 4 together using a brake press.. sounds complicated
but then if there is sponginess in the it wasnt done properly ,you can go drain one caliper at a time ..Dunno why you can't do that in the first place, as above ?.

drain the caliper furthest from the resevoir first and work back(it says.. tho Noel who is "the real deal" says otherwise and it sounds more logical.. , so that would be rear o/s wheel,rear n/s wheel front o/s wheel and front n/s wheel last (I think if starting with the furthest away, and reverse that if starting with the closest).

Tightening torques for bleed screws, 6.5nm front and 14 nm rear..(so Ive read.

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
