Has anyone ever done this? Is it hard to do? Is it necessary? Thanks for any help.

I've done it on my cars...simply siphon out the fluid reservoir and fill with new brake fluid...bleed the brakes at each wheel while continuously filling the reservoir with new fluid. You can tell when you have new fluid coming out at each wheel and move on to the next wheel. Once you have done all four, top off the fluid and you now have new fluid throughout the system. (make certain you keep fluid in the reservoir at all times to avoid air in the system)

I did it to my truck a couple months ago. Better pedal feel was the result. If it's never been done I'd do it. Brake fluid absorbs moisture easily and the more it absorbs the easier it is to boil your brake fluid.

Do you know if there is a procedure on how to do it? Maybe a step by step?
