Picture of How to Changue Oil in Brake and Steering Wheel.

All oils in this systems got a life time period, so for prevent malfunctioning, the better is to changue it.

For avoid doing a hugue mess on this, keep the things very simple and do not dissasembly many parts
I show you how to make a Vaccum oil recovery unit.

You will Need:
A vaccum pump         (Im using an old one I got lying around)
A big glass vessel     (Make shure this is from something as cherrys or any other preserving food)
Two service ports        (This ones are from Refrigeration Service ports)
A piece of hose           (This one is 1/8" clear hose, you can use anything you got.)

Lets get started

Step 1: Assembly the Jar.

This is  a very simple process, you need to drill two holes on the lid of the jar,
put the service ports on it and use some old and trusty epoxy-glue

Let them dry for a few minutes and assembly completly.

Step 2: Get the Rest Done

At this point am just using some scrap cooper tubing and swage to make it
a litte bit more wide than the small hose.

Step 3: The Target

This is the firs of two places were I used this device.

Is the brake fluid reservoir, just close the jar, turn on the pump and put the hose on it.

Step 4: The Results

Picture of The Results

As you can see, the oil is very brown and dirty.
Considering the brand new fluid is transparent, well you can imagine the degree of contamination.

Step 5: A Small Clip

Here you can see the device in function.

And another... In the steering wheel pump...
