Thanks for the info. I ended up using an audi hose. I was reading about the replacement on chris millers site and was thinking that it was gonna be a pain. The hardest part was walkin back and forth to sears ( it was about 90 outside plus humidity) for some better wrenches. I ended up using a ratchet/wrench, that thing is great. I wouldnt have been able to get the banjo bolt (on the rack) out or back in, without it. The bentley says to bleed the system, some say its not necessary, but what the hell i might as well do it anyway. My question is, to check for air bubbles in the reservoir, im assuming that the cap should be off. I dont even think superman would be able to see through that thing. Anyone have any ideas why it wasnt made clear?
