Re: Clio mk2 brakes

Seems like a plan.
You can't swap calipers over without getting air into the system or losing a little fluid.
That is why the bleed nipples are there.

I'd empty his out by pushing back pistons before fitting on your car, then let fluid drain through, topping up reservoir as needed before final bleeding.
Check his nipples are okay before committing or no advantage to you.
And make sure sizes are the same, calipers, discs etc.
Swap his discs as well if better then yours
