Hello Everybody!

I hope everyone had a good Easter! :egghatch:

Now here's my dilemma. Over the past few Months or so I have noticed that the brakes on the old girl are a bit spongy to be honest, more noticeable if I have been driving another car. As I have already replaced the front discs and pads back in the summer and the back ones are visually fine and dandy I reckon its time to change the brake fluid as she has got 152 000 miles on her. Now is there a sequence that I have to follow eg O/S Front then N/S rear etc? and has anyone used a one man brake bleeding kit as I'm looking a several on ebay and wondered what everybodies thoughts are on them. I'm only thinking of buying one as I struggle to get the wife to allow me 5 Mins to do anything never mind convince a mate to come round and pump the brakes for best part of an hour to bleed the system with me :eek:

The ones that I'm looking at are these :

Possibly lead me to use a big hammer
BRAKE BLEEDING KIT BRAKE BLEEDER KIT EASY TO USE FREE DELIVERY | eBay


Cheap Option
Easy Brake Bleeding Kit / Bleeder Tool - SAME DAY DISPATCH | eBay

Reasonable Price
Deluxe Hand Held Brake Bleeder Tester Set Bleed Kit Vacuum Pump Car Motorbike | eBay

Madly Expensive
Brake and Clutch Fluid Bleeding System Bleed Kit Sealey VS820 | eBay

Any advice will be greatly welcomed :thumb:

I actually prefer the ones where you add compressed air into the reservoir.
At least to me they seem a bit more effective. But of course you should use a hose and empty bottle to catch the old stuff coming out anyway :)

Should be normal bleeding sequence. Only if it gets totally empty you might need to do the bleeding procedure in PP2000 by activating the ABS pump etc. but shouldn't be necessary when just changing fluid.

Well bled the brake system and changed the fluid in the entire system I used a Vizibleed system from my local motor factor for £5.00 which is basically a bit of clear pipe and a one way valve :eek: works a treat took about 1 hour start to finish for all 4 corners while the braking is vastly improved in both feel and responsiveness they still feel pretty pants compared to other cars like my wife's 2007 Passat but hey ho that seems to be the norm.

Just incase anyone's wants to see here is the yucky state of my fluid so I think it was over due a change! :thumb:

No tools needed. Open each nipple, put latex gloved finger over open nipple and get someone to pump the pedal up and down ten to fifteen times each corner. Topping up between each corner. Make sure finger is pressed onto the open nipple so no air gets sucked it.
