Brake Repair

Recently seen an article about popular tools for the DIY and they said a brake bleeder wrench was a good addition to the tool box. I disagree with this, with ABS and traction control being
standard on many vehicles I think that the DIY repair of brakes is a safety factor as well as a cost actor if proper repair procedures are not followed. On many a scan tool has to be used to bleed the brakes and many of the home models do not include this option. Also the many steps that need to be taken to properly do a brake repair is quite long, including flushing the system or at least blocking off the brake hoses. There are also several special tools required on many models and a minor error can result in huge problems.
