Pressure bleeding is recommended for all hydraulic brake systems. Ensure all dirt and contaminants are removed from master cylinder area prior to removing reservoir cap.

Disc Brakes -> Front Disc Brakes -> Brake Disc Service
Vehicle: 1996 Mercury Cougar XR-7 3.8 V6 GAS

Disc brake service is extremely critical due to the close tolerances required in machining the brake disc to ensure proper brake operation.
