Re: Traffic T1000 Camper Van Brake Issues

I've never bled braked on a Servo brake system before (shows how old many of my cars have been ) so I don't know if the procedure is any different.
But a couple of questions - are you bleeding using an auto-bleed kit or do you have an assistant to pump the brake pedal while you undo/tighten the bleed nipples.
The Traffics sit low down so have you all wheels raised of the floor equally or have you two wheels up on ramps/ axle stands?
My Traffic just had its brake compensator valve replaced at the garage, dont know if this valve could affect the bleeeding process of you had drained all the fluid first.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
