poor1 Essential to change the brake fluid periodically as its hygroscopic . Honda dealers charge about 50.00 but money well spent.

tricky70 Well done Flashy, always easier with two people.

+1 On this; I wouldn't expect the paticulars of which wheel to make a massive difference provided you've done at least the basic back / front pattern.

As a side note; It may be worth popping out to a nice straight B road and triggering the ABS a few times to clear the pump of old fluid, given you're planning another flush.

flashy Thanks. According to that I have done it wrong.
LF:RF:RR:LR. Will tackle it the right way at the weekend. Only 9nm for the nipples?

Das Its always the furthest away(or rather longest) brake line first, I've always been told. TBH though I doubt it makes a difference, unless you've been renewing the actual hard brake lines, as all the brake lines come of the ABS unit separately.

What is the problem your actually having? Lack of a firm pedal?

Haltamer One from my special reserve for you:

That should have a definitive answer; I'm scrolling through now..

Ep3 brake bleeding procedure

Hi all, can someone please give me the definitive answer on the brake bleed sequence for an ep3? I've read every possible combination is the right way
I did LR:RR:LF:RF.
I ask because there has not been a great improvement.
If I redo it this weekend will the fresh bottle of dot 4 I've partially used still be OK to use?
