Just installed the Russell speed bleeders in my Commander, they appear to be the right size and I bled the brakes to replace all the fluid.
Well, all the fluid except the tiny amount in the ABS pump, I don't have the dealer tools to operate the ABS pump for bleeding. Shouldn't be a problem, as soon as snow comes and I can get the ABS to operate it should circulate the fluid and get the fresh fluid in the pump.
I used Castrol GTLMA, easier on the parts than conventional brake fluid, exceeds boiling temps for DOT4, BUT absorbs moisture slower than DOT3.
One note on the size of the bleeder screws; this is what I looked up.
M10-1.0 31.35mm length
Bleeder Screw Front and Rear on the Commander.
Speed Bleeder part num SB1010S
Russell part num RUS-639630
I got the Russell speed bleeders. They are the correct threads, correct length, etc. BUT, they are NOT identical to the OEM bleeder screws, the hex head in the middle is much longer than the OEM, meaning when you bottom out the bleeder screw, the hex head for the wrench is closer to the body of the caliper.
Oddly, the hex head for the wrench on the OEM bleeders fit a 10mm wrench, while the Russel speed bleeders fit a 7/16" wrench?
For the rear calipers, this was no problem, it still cleared. But the front calipers, the hex head is scrapping the body of the caliper when it bottoms out. I am NOT 100% positive that speed bleeder sealed properly, or it bottomed out by the hex head hitting the body of the caliper.
The brakes work properly, no obvious leaks right away, but I'll keep an eye on it and if the brakes are leaking slowly I'll post again to let everyone know the russel speed bleeders do NOT fit.
