    98 with ABS Brake fluid reservoir.

    AAAAGH

    Anyone know if these are available separately ? Just discovered mine looks like someone hit it with a spanner and the outside plastic is shattered. I was about to bleed the brakes but I daren't go near it with a pressure bleeder. I'm thinking the grommets between res and m/c will probably leak anyway.

    If I have to will just replace the m/c as that comes with a reservoir but I'ld rather not.

    Think I will try and vacuum bleed the brakes instead for now or alternatively pressure bleed them backwards - connect pipe to bleed nippple and blow the fluid back up into the reservoir.

    Wish me luck.

    Well it turned up a day late but it installed OK - no leaks from the grommets 3 litres of brake fluid later I think I got all the air out. Had one bleed nipple (right rear) that I think was letting air in around the threads giving the illusion of ar in the fluid. Getting the wife to pump through 1.5 litres the old fashioned way cured that problem I hope.

    for reference The kit I received from Tr spares was Britpart GI102542 equivalent to RTC5833 Kit - Reservoir. Tommorow we'll see how well it worked then new tyres and off up North for Xmas.

    RTC5833 is for 1991-1994 Land Rovers (pre update). These would also be non-ABS.

    Sounds like it fitted OK though so that's the main thing.

    Def fitted OK - Identical to the one I replaced minus the shattered consistency pics below

    Got it from TRspares in Sydney. Comes as a kit including the grommets that seal to the M/C and the seals between the M/C and brake booster - you're supposed to remove the MC and replace those at the same time but as they weren't leaking and I was pushed for time I didn't. Since then I've done just short of a 1000ks up to smiths lake for Xmas and did a fair bit of beach driving - a good way to test the cooling system - 7 people, plus beach stuff - 5 miles on the beach at 20-30kmh in low through sand that you couldn't move in in high.
