'08 E350 brake fluid flush

Looking to do a complete brake fluid flush and was wondering how much MB brake fluid (or comparable alternative) do I need to get to give the brake system a good flush??

Thanks in advance!

I would look in your manual for capacity and buy double that.

I used one full can and a little extra. I flushed with a motive power flush until the fluid was clear at the cylinders. The fluid in the master cylinder was also clear so the entire top to bottom system was flushed. Then 2 yrs later at the next flush I sold the car.

It is really not that critical, especially if you are flushing on a 2 year schedule.
If you do a decent job, any remaining will be gone on the next flush and 4 years is not really that old for brake fluid in a clean system.


The main point is you get the fluid out of the calipers since this fluid is repeatedly heated.
AND you get new fluid through the ABS equipment to prevent the build up of any corrosion.
