Bleeding brakes

Want to change brake fluid, never done it before.

Bleeding brakes

Postby LonestarEMT [OP] » May 01 2010, 5:24pm

Looked at the brake fluid the other day and it is really dark. I need to change but never have done it before. Can someone point me to a site with a lot of pictures or if someone has done and taken pictures. Anything would help.

I took my truck to sears and the flush my system and replaced fluid for about 35 dollars. I know this isnt what you assk but I would rather pay 35 then to deal with doing it myself
