Brake system bleeding
Note! Some variation in the illustrations may occur, but the essential information is always correct.
Guidelines for bleeding
Note! Bleeding an ABS brake system takes longer than bleeding a normal brake system.
Note! Use only Volvo Genuine Parts brake fluid (Volvo DOT 4+). Never reuse brake fluid. Always keep brake fluid in original pack and well
When reconditioning or replacing brake calipers bleed the relevant brake pipe as follows. The brake pedal must be depressed throughout the operation.
This is so that the brake system is not drained of brake fluid. If the braking system has been completely or partly drained, bleed the whole system.
switch off the ignition
clean around the brake fluid reservoir filler cap
take out the container

fill the brake fluid reservoir completely.
