  • Clarks Shimano Specific Workshop Bleed Kit

    The Clarks Shimano Specific Workshop Bleed Kit is brilliant for bleeding Shimano hydraulic brake systems. All bleed adaptors feature lock out clips to prevent pull back, and all syringes are turn lock with bleed adaptors to prevent push off. High Grade stainless steel bleed nipples are provided for an exact fit.

  • Clarks Shimano Specific Workshop Bleed Kit is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit all Shimano brakes I ordered the Shimano Specific Workshop Bleed Kit thinking it was Shimano, it's not. It's Clarks, a 3rd party supplier. The item description is misleading, giving the impression it was a Shimano product i.e. "Shimano Specific Workshop Bleed Kit". I would have expected it to say "Shimano compatible" instead, this being the common way of highlighting non-original parts. (As you'll see from the attached photo, that's exactly how Clark's describes it on the box but that's not visible in the Halfords description) Description of the kit says it includes, among other things, 3 x allen keys and 1 x spanner. The kit does not have the spanner, or allen keys as stated. (Again, see photo showing the difference in contents listed.) The bleed block differs from the one pictured in the item description and does not fit my Shimano Acera M396 calipers, so I made a small wooden block to fit. Neither of the threaded bleed adaptors fitted my system. As I needed to carry out the work urgently, I managed to cobble together other items to let me get the job done despite the missing / misfitting parts. I realise that the content of the kit is the responsibility of Clarks but, as the retailer, Halfords ought to be ensuring that it is fit for purpose and as described. If you're looking to buy this for your system, I'd get Halfords to check & confirm that it's suitable first. If you have Shimano M396 brakes, I can already tell you that it's not. Halfords are already aware of this feedback and are happy to give me a refund, which is great. Hopefully they'll also correct the listing to avoid disappointing other customers.

Once you've sent us your old item we'll check it over, and then refund you the full surcharge as long as everything is ok.

Before you return your old unit please make sure it's in re-serviceable condition. So if you're returning caliper casings, you'll need to double check they aren't badly damaged or broken. If the part you've sent is found to be unserviceable, we reserve the right not to refund the surcharge.
