Default Power (Brake) Bleeder

Don't mean to steal any light from Tom. Just want to put one of the more useful product's review in this forum. The product can be found here --> www.motiveproducts.com



Originally from the Suspension Forum -

The power bleeder works great well worth the 60 bucks shipped.
its simple. pour your favorite fluid in. tighten the pump to the master cylinder. pump away.
one note
do not go above 15 PSI. i found that the hard way. a lot of fluid on the ground

then just walk to each nipple and let the fluid, crap , and air flow into the catch can. it is a little slower than i expected but i think the whole thing took 30 min.
but it will get every little last bubble out of the system.

i give it a thumbs up

The whole bleeding process may take 30 minutes or less on some cars (like my Supra), but it is PITA to put the thing on in the WRX. I spent 30 minutes just trying to test-fit it. The engine bay is simply too cramped in the WRX to put the universal bleeder cap on, which involves hooking a chain underneath the brake fluid reservoir. Removing some bolts around the reservoir may help, but it is no longer a simple and fast process.

I'd probably still recommend the bleeder for other models, but it's not for the WRX.

I agree. I bought the motive product originally for my 944, for which it did an incredible job. So I bought the universal adaptor. I attempted to test fit it on the WRX but decided it just was NOT worth the effort. I'll have to stick with the old fashioned bleeding method.
