DISCOVERY 2 SPECIAL ADAPTER
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.
