Brake Fluid Change on ‘21 M760i

876 Views 12 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  QSilver7
My ‘21 M760i is due for a brake fluid change in March. I’ve never done a brake fluid change but I’m wondering if I should give it a try. I’m considering buying one of those devices that hook up to your brake fluid reservoir and push fresh fluid into the reservoir as you bleed fluid out at awheel. Anyway, any words of wisdom for me? Is it so much hassle that I should just pay the dealer to do it? Thanks in advance.

Doug Huffmand and Jaye944, thanks for the help and information. Sounds like the brake fluid change is going to be more complex than something I'd like to try.
Kssod, thanks for the hint on the BMW Maintenance program. It looks like brake fluid is covered in the maintenance program. I bought my car used but it's been less than 3 years and 36k miles so hopefully I'm covered. I did buy it from a BMW dealer. My car needs to get a PA state inspection here shortly. It's scheduled for early February at the local BMW dealer. I'll ask about the brake fluid change at that time. Hopefully the fact that I didn't buy the car from him doesn't present a problem.
Again, thanks everyone for the help.
Jaye944, Kssod and Autoputzer : Thanks for the comments and information.
Jaye944, thanks for the meme. You hit the nail on the head in my case.
Qsilver7, thanks for the detailed brake fluid service instructions. I'm going to keep them for the next time when I no longer have the option of it being done at the dealership under warranty.
