I checked IPD for a price on this thinking I might get one,and read good and bad reviews.One said it's a piece of cake and another said it stinks!The bad review states that 240 's brakes rarely bleed without some trouble and require high pressure that repair shops have.Any thoughts on this ? I have new rotors and pads for the back that I want to do. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Motive brake bleeder (volvoyankee)

There are other cheaper power brake bleeeders available but they won't assure a "no problems" bleed job nor will the Motive unit.<p>If your 240 has no brake problems but just is ready for new rear pads, rotors (and e-brake shoes?) then the power bleed will go smoothly if done correctly.<p>If you car has problems in the brake system the bleed job may not fix them.<p>For sure don't use the brake pedal to bleed the brakes and be sure to bleed in the correct sequence (for ABS cars).<p>When spreading the calipers to install the new components open the bleed valve just enough to take the pressure off the pistons.<p>George Dill<p><br>
