1 The brake and clutch fluid reser­voir fit­ted to Dis­cov­ery 2 is dif­fer­ent to De­fender and can­not use the adapter cap sup­plied with the pres­sure bleed­ing tool. 2 This univer­sal adapter from the man­u­fac­turer has the J clamps too close for a Dis­cov­ery 2 brake reser­voir, so I have mod­i­fied it with a steel plate.

3 The 8 mm plate was cut to size and drilled to hold the J-clamps slightly fur­ther apart to clear the reser­voir. The plate is ca­ble-tied onto the adapter. 4 Look­ing at the top of the adapter, you can see the steel plate has also been drilled in the cen­tre to al­low the plas­tic pipe con­nec­tion to pass through. 5 On this spare com­bined brake/clutch fluid reser­voir from a Dis­cov­ery 2, it can be seen how the ad­di­tion of the steel plate al­lows the univer­sal adapter to work. 6 Fit­ted to the reser­voir of a Dis­cov­ery 2, the univer­sal adapter is ready to con­nect to the pres­sure brake bleeder, to ser­vice the brake and clutch sys­tems. 7 The pres­sure brake bleeder has a habit of leav­ing the reser­voir over-filled with fluid. This sy­ringe is used to take off some of the ex­cess fluid.
