Sorry for the repeated message.

I did find that you have to give the screen a yank with some needle nose 
pliers. There are four plastic barbs on the screen that keep it from being 
removed easily. I shaved those a bit to make it easier next time. I used a 
vacuum pump at the bleeders to remove fluid. Very slow going on the rear 
calipers. You need an 11mm socket for the bleeders.

Still don't know what the tubes under the yellow plug are for.

What's the story on the A4 (B6) brake reservoir? I want to replace the
fluid, but I can't get the screen out to remove some of the old fluid before
bleeding. I also tried removing the yellow plug and saw two tubes. How do
those work?
