Pressure Brake Bleeder

Will work on all Mercedes from 1968 to 1995 - Also select 1960's models and most later chassis up to 2006 see list below

25-minute video instructions are now included. Our pressure bleeder is modified and put together here in our shop. We take a specialized pump sprayer and add a reliable pressure gauge and a modified cap that will screw on the top of your master cylinder reservoir. We add a splice fitting 6 inches from the end of the hose when the cap attaches. This will allow you to connect different attachments to this pressure tank. Kent is constantly working on new uses for this "controlled" pressure tank. Currently, we have available an attachment kit and instructions that will allow you to set the injection pump timing on your older Mercedes diesel. See related products below for more information on this IP timing attachment kit and for other attachments available. Also listed below are other brake bleeding DIY kits, tools and supplies that can help you get your brakes fixed and operating at peak performance.

Using Our Pressure Brake Bleeder and Capture Tank - On Demand Video

Product Details

In the video below Kent explains the operation, care, and cleaning of this special tank

Pressurized system flushing or air bleeding is the preferred method, particularly on older cars where you would want to avoid damaging the seals in an old master cylinder or on newer ABS equipped cars where pressure bleeding is the only reliable way to make certain you get all the air out of your ABS controller and brake lines.  

Our pressure bleeder has a couple features not found on others in this price range. It has a release valve on the side that allows you to bleed off pressure without loosening the cap. That is very important as you would not want brake fluid spraying out and getting on your car's paint.  It also has the end change splice fitting as described above and the cap has a special standpipe that prevents overfilling the brake master cylinder reservoir. The bleeder tank also includes Kent's Pressure Brake Fluid Bleeder Instructions in PDF format.

Below is a close up of the spice fitting. Zip ties are used for securing the hose and are more than adequate for the pressures used. It is easy to cut off the zip tie, pull the short section of hose free, install another attachment and replace the zip tie "clamp." If you desire to add your own fittings this hose uses standard 1/14 barbed fittings.

Kent has developed some extras that can help you speed your brake bleeding process. He has also written a manual on how to work on your own brakes. Check out related products below for more information. 

Any time you bleed your brakes you will need absorbent pads or catch clothes for any spills. We have a great pack of incredibly absorbent pads you can add to your order. 

Also works on the following models from 1996 up through 2004 as well as the S Class W220 all the way up to 2006 Note: Will not work on the W211 chassis with SBC (sensotronic brakes)

Here is a picture bleeding the brakes on a 2000 E430.

It is interesting that the same cap threads have been used on almost all master cylinder reservoir caps from the early 1960's up to the mid 2000's. Below are a couple pictures showing how the pressure bleeder cap fits on some early 1960's models like the W108, W109 W110, W111, W112 and W113 chassis. If you have a reservoir that looks like one of the ones below then this pressure tank will work. Just be sure and not use too much pressure on these older reservoirs as they may leak fluid due to old rubber seals.
