Super Blue Brake Fluid Opinions
I am still in the process of rejuvenating my '93 500SEL.
The previous documented brake service on this vehicle was done at 60,000 miles in 1999. Now there are 134,000 miles. The front and rear pads are still good.
I visually checked the brake fluid in the MC reservoir and found that it was blue fluid, darkened somewhat from use.
I assume that when the brake service was done that Super Blue Racing Fluid was used.
Here is my question: should I flush the system or bleed it? I will use the Super Blue fluid which is MB approved regardless.
The braking systems on these cars are somewhat more complicated because of the ASR and ABS factors and I don't want to complicate my life out of ignorance, so I am asking anyone on this fine forum what their opinions and experiences are about bleeding or flushing the system and what I should be cautious about.
Thanks for any advice or opinions.
