Brake fluid ?

Recommended Posts

I did the rotors/pads on the Volvo a few days ago and today I bled the system with SuperBlue. It was my first time doing it, I have a pressure bleeder tank to use. Everything went ok... a little messy though. Obviously brake fluid is highly toxic, i got some on my hands and it burned like hell. I rinsed with lots of water immediately. I did have 2 fresh small scrapes that came in contact with the fluid.

Any specific concerns?

1.) Don't lick it.

2.) Wash it off when you're done

3.) Of course its warm. Pour vodka on your arm, that's kind of warm too.

4.) Brake fluid in your bloodstream is no big deal. Look at me, I turned out just fine.

Thanks.

I just finished up the Volvo.. brakes are done. I bedded them in too.

Did 8 60-10mph medium stops on the highway. By the 3rd or 4th they started to smell. One caliper looks a bit green now. After a few hundred miles i'll really test them out. Supposedly the 850 stops shorter than the 944.
