How are you track guys bleeding your brakes after changing fluid? I was told it has to be done at the dealer on the computer. Please tell me there is another way.
All you need is a 7/16" closed end wrench, someone to pump the brake pedal and a catch bottle like this:1-1-12 said:
ShaneM said:your dealer may have been talking about swapping fluid with the ability to cycle the abs to remove all the old stuff. my understanding is that needs the dealer computer system. i second the motive speed bleeder, easiest brake bleeding ever. slurp all the old fluid from the res, fill with new stuff and you can get most of the old fluid out.

It does. I can use the Motive on my '08 and the '12s. P/N 0118 is the one I have too.CaliMR said:The regular Ford 3 prong or the GM/Ford 3 prong? The regular Ford says not for mustangs 05+, the GM/Ford says for Mustangs 05+. I don't know if the 10+ use the same as the 05-09

Have the person in the car pump up the brake pedal and hold pressure, attach the catch bottle over the nipple with the wrench around the bleeder screw, then open slowly. Have them let you know when the pedal's down and close it quickly before they lift their foot. Rinse and repeat as necessary until you get fresh looking fluid Make sure you periodically check the reservoir and add fluid so it doesn't drop too low where it would suck air into the system.
Some people will use the Motive Power Bleeder also at the website I linked so you can do it yourself without two people.
The torque specs are 159 in/lbs for the front bleeder and 89 in/lbs for the rear.
