Clean, high quality brake fluid is essential to the safe and proper operation of the brake system. You should always buy the highest quality brake fluid that is available. If the brake fluid becomes contaminated, drain and flush the system, then refill the master cylinder with new fluid. Never reuse any brake fluid. Any brake fluid that is removed from the system should be discarded. Also, do not allow any brake fluid to come in contact with a painted surface; it will damage the paint.
Fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with brake fluid. Use SAE J1703 or FMVSS No. 116 DOT3 brake fluid.
Using SST 09023-00101, or equivalent, disconnect the brake lines from the master cylinder.
