    IIRC = If I Recall Correctly...

    The 2 nipples in question are on the master cylinder and need a 7mm spanner or deep socket to undo...

    When bleeding the brakes on an S3 'DO NOT' use the pump the pedal method as this can damage the master cylinder seals... use a pressure bleeder such as the Gunsons Eezi Bleed

    One last thing, please could I direct you to this... makes your posts a little easier to read
    Use of the English language...please read!
