Bleeding Boxster Brakes


Recommended Posts

Hello, for those of you with experience of the 987 Boxster. My wife has a 2006 2.7 and I'd like to know that if I remove a caliper after clamping the flexi line, then when I re-attach the caliper and attempt to bleed the system is it a normal bleed process?

My understanding is that as long as the ABS unit stays full of brake fluid then setting the cars computer into bleed mode is not required. Thanks.

The theory is certainly correct.i did this on my E53 X5 years ago when I had a snapped nipple on a front  calliper.think the trick is avoid any air getting sucked back into the abs module so I used a pressure bleeder attached keeping the pressure in the system and then a bleed out straight away when all reattached.and the clamp released.

I had a 987 Cayman so same as Boxter and just used the basic two person method, never had any problems, but like mentioned I made sure the fluid reservoir never ran dry so no air got sucked in.
