    How Much Brake Fluid?

    Hi Guys,

    Hoping to get an honest opinion - basically I have a sticky calliper on one side that's been causing me problems and managed to warp 2 sets of discs in 6months! Long story but now getting round to pricing it all up.

    I'm planning on having new callipers, carriers, discs and pads renewed obviously (OE as I can't afford anything fancy now!) and wondered how much brake fluid would be needed for the job. Need an honest opinion not a garage opinion if anyone has any idea? Obviously the whole system will need to be flushed with all that lot being disconnected and replaced...

    Thanks

    I used nearly 1L of RBF 600 when my fronts were done, although that was by a couple of grease monkeys who may has been syphoning it back for their own use!

    It took me about a litre from empty to fill and bleed my A4.
