Guys I need some help!
Last weekend I was changing the rear pads on my 2002 9-5. I turkey basted some of the existing brake fluid to get the level to MIN before starting so as not to overflow during the caliper pressing... finished the job and when i went to re-fill i ACCIDENTALLY topped it off with power steering fluid. (maybe 2-3 ounces worth)
I just realized this today when I was re-checking fluids and my mind flashed back to what I was doing that fateful night.
I have not lost braking power and there are no warning lights on. The level of fluid has not dropped from when I topped it off at MAX.
Pentosin 11S Synthetic Mineral Base Hydraulic Fluid is what I used.. It is what I normally use for the power steering but the bottle looks so similar to the brake fluid I grabbed the wrong one
My question is: Can I baster out the Master cylinder and clean it with some denatured alcohol and repeat, repeat, repeat and fill it back up with DOT 4 brake fluid to solve this?
I am thinking (praying) that at such a low amount that it never reached any of the seals/calipers/etc since the PS fluid should float to the top of brake fluid
(? i think ?)
If not, there goes Christmas as I will be emptying the bank to have the brake system re-done.
Thanks for any advice
