Talking about servicing, at 35K I thought I better bleed the brakes after I'd heard some reports
of the caliper pistons having a tendancy to rust and seize [ Ah, fond memories of the trusty old Cortina MK3 ]
With 20 inch alloys the job is made rather easy and the bleeding can be done
without removing the wheels, just work through the spokes if you have wee hands.
The DOT 4 gloop is acceptable if you can't get DOT 3
The old fluid was thick, rather dark and dirty [ unless that's what DOT 3 looks like ]
60 minutes was all that was needed.
