brake fluid change
Hi there,

want to bleed the brakes and renew the fluid soon but have two questions:

1 - has anyone tried using this pressure-bleed kit? If so, is it any good? Failing that, I'll just pick up one of those one-way valve jobbies.

2 - my haynes manual doesn't give a capacity for the brake fluid, so not sure how much to purchase in advance. It's a Berlingo van (2000 X-reg, no ABS) so if anyone knows the right capacity that's be great.

Failing that can someone give me a ballpark figure for a typical hydraulic system (are we talking about 2 litres, 5 or nearer 10, say?)

cheers, Jim

Does anyone have an idea on this?

Unfortunately i do not know much about the braking system on the Lingo, but im guessing someone does know for sure.
1. You need another man which will press a brake pedal. To spend money for this, i think this is irrationally
2. What Berlingo do you have? Mk1, Mk2 or Mk3?
Hi Jimothy,
I've used the Gunson kit for many years and it really makes life easy - especially if you're on you''re own.

Hi Jimothy,I always buy a litre which is enough,I pump it all through as it goes off if not stored properly.

Yep a litre is loads. Iv used the one way bleeds some are good some are s**t.

Halfords have a good one for about 6 euro
