I started bleeding my brakes today on my 360, and I was not getting enough fluid. It just did not seem right.
I am using this bleeder from GriotsGarage.com: http://www.griotsgarage.com/product/...rrivals&page=1
It is a tremendous assistant because it quickly extracts fluid, keeps it well contained, and nothing will spill!
I also purchased from Griots this flare nut wrench set. It is invaluable. This I highly recommend especially if you have an older car.
So I set my compressor pressure to 75 lbs and little fluid. I up it to 90 lbs and still little. I was very concerned.
Then it dawned on me that the ABS valves are preventing the fluid from moving. I was right. Started the car, had my bride pump the brakes, and voila fluid came out like gang busters!
Now I have my killer brakes working again.
I used Pentosin Dot 4 fluid.
I did find that there was considerable caking in the resevoir! I have no idea what it was, and I thought I might have to take the whole unit apart to get it fully cleaned out.
However, I used the vacuum brake bleeder to suck out all the particles including the old fluid, and then I cleaned the residue with a clean rag. It was spotless before I added fluid.
I had neglected to change my brake fluid for a while. It was almost 3 1/2 years!
I suggest no one do that. Two years at the very most!
Torqued the wheel bolts to 74 lbs, and now it feels like a Ferrari.
As an aside, I would order and keep on hand a few brake bleeder screws. You never know when you might have a tough bleer that gives in and nas to be removed.
You can get Brembo bleeder screws at Porsche dealers. They are M10X1 and come 2 in a pack. They also come with the rubber seal caps. All Brembo brakes use the same bleeders.
Tatke your time, and you'll do a great job,
Don't forget to recycle the old brake fluid!
