Interesting thanks Boxsey.
On the 993 calipers there are two nipples per caliper. I take it both need to be bled?
This being the case does it matter which one 1st? Or aslong as u start with the furthest caliper away from the reservoir, makes no difference?


Yes even on our older model we have two on each too! I figure that the outside nipple is furthest away from the brake line that feeds the caliper so always do that one first.

I would also recommend you use a proper 11 mm brake spanner or 6 sided spanner to guard against rounding off stubbon bleed nipples.

Will do thanks Steve, other than that is the ABS not something that needs
to be worried about?
Think I will treat the car to some of those fast road pads whilst Im at it Thumb

On C2s there's nothing else to worry about. Some bleed the clutch slave aswell but this is a PIA on a 964 (don't know about a 993). However most of us only bleed the slave if the gear shift starts getting difficult. I believe there's something else to do when bleeding brakes on a C4 but luckily I don't have to worry about what that is Grin .
