Can you please explain exactly the process you use "...to bed them in." ?
"Improper wheel torquing can also warp the rotors. "
Interesting, on the net it seems like it can go either way.
Frequencydip, when you say your directional vanes point towards the back of the car, what is your reference, the top or bottom of the rotor?
It's just a good idea to do it regularly (every 2 years in my cars and every year on my motorcycle). Also can't see what's going on in the calipers so there could be moisture there. I use a Synthetic DOT 4 fluid - don't use DOT 5.If you're not seeing cloudiness in the brake fluid reservoir why bleed your brakes? There's no contamination of water if its not cloudy. I'd concentrate on the pads and down the road bleed the fluid in a separate process.
I've used a Mityvac with my motorcycles when I've had to change lines or calipers and so the system is starting out empty. I used the Mityvac to "fill" the system but still use the "assistant" method to do the final bleed. I've heard the ones that fit onto the reservoir and "push" fluid are better than the ones that "pull" from the caliper but have no first-hand experience.Any recommendations on a single man bleeder system?
