Re: Draining brake fluid


There are a few ways

1 Purchase a pressure bleeder.

2 , With someone in the car depressing the brake pedal whilst you open the bleed nipple on each wheel whilst keeping an eye on the reservoir not letting it go empty. With the fluid being bled into a clear bottle keep bleeding around the wheels until clear fluid is seen in the bottle.

If you don't press the clutch pedal then you should be OK but you must ensure that the reservoir never completely empties.
