Brake Bleeding: Service and Repair
Brake System Bleeding
Brake system bleeding
Note! Bleeding an ABS brake system takes longer than bleeding a normal brake system.
Guidelines for bleeding
When reconditioning or replacing brake callipers 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.
Note! Use only genuine Volvo brake fluid with designation Volvo DOT 4+. Never reuse brake fluid. Always keep brake fluid in original
packaging and well sealed.
Switch off the ignition.
Clean around the brake fluid reservoir filler cap.
Take out the container.
Remove the filler cap.
Fill the brake fluid reservoir completely.
