      Thank you for sharing your knowledge. In which order did you bleed those brakes? Is there a certain order of wheels in which you bleed brakes on 2006 jetta 2.5L?

      check what type of ABS system you have before you start bleeding, MkIV golf can be fitted with different types. It is important to know because it effects the bleeding sequence. One system requires bleeding right hand rear-left hand rear-right hand front-left hand front, the other system requires a reversed sequence (left hand front first etc.)

      Something goes very wrong at the end: when finished, first depressurize the bleeder tank, then take the cap off the reservoir, not the other way around like they say in the video, the pressurized tank will force the remainder of the brake fluid out and all over your engine bay. Motive's instructions read: "Never remove reservoir cap before depressurizing Power Bleeder tank."

      At the beginning there is wrong info as well. First install empty pump and pressurize with air for about ~5 min to make sure you don't have leaks, then proceed to add the fluid

      Is that metal bit in the middle of the pressure bleeder hose a non-return valve? Also, what happens to the air trapped on the top of the brake fluid reservoir? I take it just gets forced through, once you open the bleed valves on each caliper?

      Thanks for your great demonstration. I have a vw golf tdi and want to bleed the clutch with a pressure bleeder, do I do the same as the brakes but on the clutch. I.e. Set the pressure to 10psi open the bleeder on the clutch and wait till no air comes out? Do I pump the clutch or just leave it?

      hi, I have had continuous problems with master or slave cylinder for 3 years I must have changed at least 5 times each times lasting me 6 months at the most. this last time it has been changed has lasted me a while and now the clutch pedel started to feel soft again. Last week I had my brake pads and disc changed and its just a coincidence the cluth pedal started to feel soft a week after. Do you think the bleeding of brakes pads not been done properly?

      What about bleeding the clutch?

      Same process, you just do it last. Your slave cylinder has a bleeder screw just like your calipers.

      Year of the car would have been nice, and a quick "here is where everything is" segment too

      It also includes a roller clutch. You also need to aerate.

      I didn't tighten the bladder valve ask the way and I thought a hose or hard line went, so when I finally found it was the bleeder valve ask the fluid leaked out. Do I need to bleed every single caliper and flush old fluid? What about the clutch? Do I need to bleed the clutch also?

      As stated in the video. First removing the cap at the reservoir proceeded to throw the remaining brake fluid in the bleeder bottle all over my car. Not a fun cleanup. Motive demo video shows first releasing pressure at bleeder bottle cap. Unfortunately I watched their video too late.

      Great ! I am prepare to changing the brake fluid of my car, which is 2006 MK5 VW Jetta 2.5L. Could you please tell me what kind of brake fluid you used or fits in my car?

      We used the OEM DOT 4 brake fluid (, which is the correct fluid for your car as well.
