Does anybody have experience of single man bleeding kits? There are a number on the market but just how good are they.
Thanks.

Hi Mike, there are a few to pick from, which one is relevant for a Coupe? Also, is it straightforward to use?
Thanks.

it will be this one

changed since I bought mine as mine as a plastic cap.

It's easy to use.

fill with fluid, attach cap to fluid reservoir on the car. tighten cap on bleeder and use handle to pump up pressure. I use around 10psi.

Open bleed valve and it will push the fluid through.
Repeat for each bleed valve.

it holds just under 2 litres so enough to do all 4 comfortably

Always release the pressure from the bleeder before removing the cap from the brake fluid reservoir

I use the Gunson kit. For occasional use they are fine. They use the spare tyre to pressurise the system. Cheap from Halfords. They have different caps to fit most master cylinders.
