Bump - curious as well. I am planning to pull my receipts to check. How extensive is the flush? Can this be done by Indy or does it require special tools/computer to drain?

I recently had my brake fluid flushed by my indy mechanic (part of the 90k maintenance). He said that it was one of the easiest flushes he's done. Said there was nothing special to it.

Got it Thanks! Too bad I don't have a Land Rover specialist around me.

AB has a sale on fluids this week and thought about flushing the brake. How many bottles are required as a replacement? Thanks!

I'd buy 2-Qt or L --whatever they come in. Do you plan to do this yourself?

No sir, going to a nearby shop to have it done. Thanks Goose!
Anyone done this as DIY ? I'm thinking to get motive power bleeder but do I have to remove all wheels or can you bleed calipers and reach bleed valve through the spokes in the wheels ?

I bled mine and I can't recall for sure but I think the fronts can be accessed by turning the wheels in or out, and the rears from underneath the back. I could not syphon almost any fluid out of the reservoir so I just kept pumping it through the system until the fluid coming out of the bleeder hose was clear. I just used a tight fitting hose over the bleeder going into a plastic pop bottle with some new fluid in the bottom that covered the hose end. I have a pressure bleeder, but I didn't use it. I can't remember why.
