Important Notes


  1. Make sure that the vehicle is standing on a level surface. This process can be carried out without removing the wheels, however it is much easier to access the bleed nipples if the wheel is removed first. If you do remove the wheel ensure that the car remains level and is safely supported.
  2. Always use fluid from a sealed container and dispose of used fluid safely.
  3. Thoughout the process maintain the level of the brake master cylinder reservoir at the MAX mark.
  4. If brake fluid comes into contact with the paintwork, the affected area must be immediately washed down with cold water.
  5. The X-Type braking system consists of separate circuits for each front and diagonally opposite rear wheel. Each front to rear circuit and each wheel circuit can be bled individually of each other.
  6. The service ABS hydraulic control unit is supplied pre-filled with brake fluid. Therefore, a conventional bleed procedure should be adequate to remove all the air from the brake system.
  7. When removing the brake fluid reservoir filler cap place it into the plastic bag and seal. This removes any risk of debris or contamination on reservoir filler cap.
