    Brake fluid capacity for 06

    Did a search but turned up nothing helpful.

    Just wondering what the brake fluid capacity is for an '06 WRX? This is for a full flush and refill.

    As an aside, what is the capacity of the clutch fluid? Yes, I know it just uses brake fluid as well.

    Thanks...

    It took "rtstone" about a bottle and a half for the brakes. I've read it takes about a bottle for most people. So have at least two on hand, but don't open the second bottle until it's needed. Brake fluid absorbs water in the air after it's been opened.

    As noted in the thread above, this power bleeder is awesome.

    I used less than a bottle, total, but it's definitely a good idea to have two on hand as previously mentioned.

    I forgot to ask, by bottle do you guys mean a pint (16oz.) or a quart/liter?

    Thanks again.
