bearing01 is an unknown quantity at this point
I received my (99-01) E46 bentley service manual yesterday. As I was skimming through it states that Brake fluid should be flushed / replaced 2yrs after the car manufacturing date because brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air. It also said something about the car should be hooked up to their diagnostic system as the brakes are flushed. Has anyone changed their brake fluid their self? Should this definitely be done after 2 yrs?

Opinions & Suggestions Please

i had mine brake fluid flushed i think its a good idea because the fluid does absorb moisture and the boiling point is reduced possibly causing malfunctions. i had my dealer do the service

Yes, it needs to be changed for the mentioned reasons. You don't have to hook it up to anything unless the hydraulic unit is replaced. We operate the valves and pumps inside the hydraulic unit to bleed it out if it's replaced.
