What year is your car and do you have asc asc+t
or ast. If not, its no problem


If anyone knows the definitive answer on this, please speak up. You may save me from destroying my lovely car's brakes with a relabeled pesticide sprayer.


Or you get one of those nifty bastards that pumps the new fluid through.


Right, but that's no different than changing a non-ABS car's fluid. Make sure you don't get any air in it, use a hose with a check valve, and GET SOMEBODY TO HELP you. MUCH easier that way. I did it myself and went through 2 bottles before I was sure I did it right (you only really need 1).

They say you should use the BMW machine that activates the ABS and lets all the fluid out of the little valves and everything... I did a bleed myself and it stops on a DIME.

Thanks for the advice, Tim. I'm sure you
are correct ... so long as you don't accidentally
let some air get into the system from up top.

I guess I'm just getting lazy.
