    I am hoping to change / Flush my Brake Fluid out on the 220TE (124) the C240 (W202 ) and the 320CDI (W210) over Christmas ,I have bought 2 x 5 litre containers of DOT 4 and am hoping this will be sufficient Anyone know what the approximate capacities are for a complete fluid change on the above ?
    Thanks

    I'd have thought that 10 litres would be sufficient to do all the cars in the street ;) (no idea about SBC brakes though if applicable) By rights, you need the ABS modulating while you bleed them so that all the fluid is changed.

    I would take one of those 5ltr cans back :lol:

    3 -3.5 litres should do all 3 cars.
