Renault Clio. Braking circuit: Bleed

IMPORTANT

To avoid all risk of damage to the systems, apply the safety and cleanliness instructions and operation recommendations before carrying out any repair (see 30A, General information, Brake circuit: Precautions for the repair, 30A-2).

This procedure must be applied after one of the following components has been removed or replaced:

WARNING

Switch off the vehicle ignition so as not to activate the hydraulic unit solenoid valves when bleeding the brake circuit.

WARNING

The level must be between the " MIN " and " MAX " markings on the reservoir.

Note:

The new hydraulic unit is pre-filled.

When working on one of the following components, position a pedal press to limit the outflow of brake fluid and prevent any air from entering the master cylinder and the circuits downstream of the master cylinder:

Remove the pedal press before carrying out the braking system bleeding procedure.

Note:

The circuit between the bleed screw and brake fluid reservoir is closed in different ways depending on the type of equipment used:

BRAKE FLUID REPLACEMENT INTERVAL

Our braking technology, and in particular the disc brakes (hollow pistons which conduct little heat, have a low volume of fluid in the cylinder, sliding callipers avoiding the need for a fluid reserve in the least cooled area of the wheel), has allowed us to prevent the risk of " vapour lock " as far as possible, even with heavy braking (mountainous area). However, current brake fluids are subject to minor deterioration during the first months of use due to slight humidity intake. This is why it is recommended that you change the brake fluid: see maintenance booklet for the vehicle.

1 - Topping up the level

Wear of the brake pads will result in a gradual drop in the fluid level in the reservoir.

Do not top up the fluid, as the level will rise again when the pads are next changed. The brake fluid level must not fall below the minimum mark.

2 - Approved brake fluid

Mixing two incompatible brake fluids in the brake circuit may lead to:

To prevent such risks, it is essential to use only brake fluids that comply with the RENAULT standard (see Vehicle: Parts and consumables for the repair).
