New brake caliper

I recently replaced the front right caliper on the 240 as it had a broken bleeder nipple. It was leaking brake fluid, so it was due for a change.

Bleeding brakes

I didn’t have anyone else around here to apply the brake pedal for me to help with the bleeding, so I have acquired a tool that runs on compressed air that sucks the fluid out. Then it is easy to do the brakes yourself. Just be sure to check the level of the brake fluid so it does not go empty.

Went for a test drive afterwards, brakes felt good now. Was a bit more squishy before the change.
