Roberto, in exchange for uploading the video, I respectfully ask that you remove these two from your list. In no routine maintenance of any car ever in any system of said car at any point in time in the history of the automobile was drilling ever necessary. I would be disheartened if a fellow 'fester f*cked up their car with a power tool over something as silly as this.

An aircompressor also is not something needed in any car for this particular task. Routine maintenance requires a running motor to pressurize the system naturally, not with over pressuring it with your artificial pressure.
