    Turkster (I think) changed it on his 2.5 to good effect, so it can be done. Hopefully he'll chirp in with how he did it.

    TBH all i did was unscrew the cap, turn the steering to full lock for 60 seconds, let any fluids get pumped right down into there channels and top up the bottle, then did a full lock the other side and did the same, once the squeel was gone i topped up the bottle to the line and put the cap back on, job done,

    Ok my mistake, Turkster obviously did a bleed rather than a fluid swap.
