My Esky oh shit handle finally arrived,Esky dash swap is officially done.
I'm just back home. After coming back from work I had to tow a neighbor's Renault to the nearest Renault Dealer as it did not start.
47 old and it's the second time I use a tow bar.
The 'Hoe impressed the neighbor.
Ah. I have those brackets on my 02 retrofits. Nice.
Why not do the method where you disconnect the return hose, run it into a bucket and flush it completely? You can replace 100% of the fluid that way.
Cause I only had 1/2 bottle of fluid on hand.
Rocket man’s comments made me run 3 quarts thru, pumping it all out. Somewhat better. Probably just gonna have to replace the pump one day. It’s been a little groan noise when turning hard left in parking lots for years.
I had my pump replaced and the restored pressure helped out my hydroboost brake performance a bit. The braking improvement was noticeable, and no more pump whine.
Excellent info. I hadn’t even considered this.. mine’s been whining just a little ever since I’ve owned it. It’s been on my list, but I think that comment bumped it up a little...
My mechanic tried some PS magic fluid to see if that would quiet it down, but it didn't do much so I opted for the full pump change. I thought it important with the brakes being integrated, and I was preparing a camping trip and towing a camper a few months later.
