What Braking System
Posted 18 September 2018 - 07:46 PM
I need to know a bleeding sequence I’ve checked Haynes but don’t know what system I have.
Also I need to replace the copper brake pipe that is clipped to the front subframe that goes to the flexi on the calliper
( passenger side) is this just joined low down to the other other side I can’t see down there (pictures always help) 👍🏻
Cheers guys appreciate it as always

The pipe goes into a 3 way fitting on the o/s flexi. Bleed the rear first I believe?
It's a front rear split not diagonal.

If you haven't got it, There is a PDF of the official Rover MPI workshop manual available on the interweb.
That tells you how to bleed the brakes on your model.
Its the top link on this page
Page 237 on the PDF document

I'd always bleed every thing. Get the reservoir almost empty in both sections before adding fresh fluid the first time.
This way you're getting as much old fluid out as you can before mixing the new stuff into it.
Brake fluid should be changed at least every 5 years as it goes off.

Industry standard on most cars is to change brake fluid every 2 years - I know I know, most dealers don't do it but if you want a trouble free and long lasting braking system then do it every 2 years.
It is about a one hour job if done nice and slowly , on jacks and all 4 wheels off.
