    I need to change my Fluid on the 124/ 202 and the 210 :( There are numerous kits avail car mechanics reccomended the sealey ( hand vaccuum pump VS 401 -now VS 402 etc )
    Easiest when set up and suitable for ABS is Gunson Eezibleed that runs of the Tyre ( does anyone know if this fits the merc reservoir ???
    There is also the simple Draper 37316 but hard work if I am doing all 4 Brake nipples on each car .
    Any Advice / reccomendations ??:confused:
    Thanks Boyd:)

    I used the Gunson Eezibleed on my Range Rover recently and was well impressed. Wish I had bought one years ago.

    I have an Ezee Bleed which although good is not well made.

    The seal between the pipe and lid is very poor and needed a new washer.

    I would personally go for the Sealey one if you expect to do this more than once.

    There's no need for all this up and down business with the missus when there are all these sucking and blowing kits ;);)

    I've used the Gunson eezee bleed on the family fleet, MB and BMW. Works well, never had any problems.
