Re: [DMCForum] brake fluid?



Don't worry, this isn't really a "can of worms" topic. :) Just about 
everybody uses Castrol GTLMA DOT 4 fluid. It's safe and works great with 
the Girling brake system. Before you start flushing the system, you might 
want to suck the old fluid out of the reservoir. No point in flushing that 
gunk through the system if you can avoid it.

Remember, flush the brakes every 2 years for a healthy system.
