    Hi everyone,

    I have recently bought a F430 F1 and I am decided to change all the fluids of the car my self. I have already read DIY section of this forum and seen many YT videos. In the video of Normal Guy Supercar he uses the Launch X431. Since I only need the diagnosis tool to bleed the clutch, for me X431 is too expensive. Thats why I would like to ask if any of you know any other cheaper tool which does this function of clutch bleeding?

    Thanks!

    If you want to bleed the clutch only (ie. not the actuator) you don't need any tool at all.
    Just start the engine !! That makes the TCU to open, and maintain open, the clutch. Then, open the bleeding screws in turn for a few seconds and repeat several times.

    But, if you really want to change all the fluids, including in the F1 actuator lines, then you will need a tool and X431 is proably the cheapest one.

    Thanks for your answer. Actually I´d like to change all fluids, including F1 actuator lines... What about Foxwell NT530 or Foxwell NT680?

    I know you are looking for a tool but to do a full bleed as mentioned the actuator needs to be removed which sometimes require the cat to be removed

    Just a fyi ..since you are new on the forum
