Anyone recommend a self bleeding brake kit that actually fits 96-00 civic?
One that connects to spare wheel type.
I ask as I tryed a "Draper" kit and the screw on caps provided didn't suit the fluid reservoir on my ek4.

Links or recommendations please

I just use a one man kit i got from Halfords but its made from Gunsons iirc.

Its a plastic tube with a neoprene section that fits onto the nipple. then it goest into a bottle with a non return valve. I get a mate to pump the brake while I open the nipple.

This is it

Im currently using a homemade version of the above.
Its the pressurized version im looking so its a single person operation for when nobody here to help me.
Connects to spare wheel and fluid reservoir.

Bought that one in link as didnt notice it had one way valve on it at first, so can be used by single person.
Cheers.

I use this cheap ebay vacuum bleeder, still works like charm after many years.....the great thing about it is you don't even need to be at your brakepedal so you cannot damage the master cilinder.

Sorry for the holy thread bump....

But similar question to the OP, anyone know a decent one man bleeder that will fit an EK?

Link above just takes you to Halfords website not the product
