is it safe enough that I could follow a tutorial from youtube for diy? thanks

Yes put the bleeder on and start from the caliper that is furthest away from the master cylinder and just take your time with it keeping everything as clean as you can.

What's the difference in changing the brake fluid and refilling?

It has to be changed due to water ingress and age. Is that what you meant ?

That is the correct fluid DOT 4 brake fluid I would get 2L.

Thank you. and would this bleeder do the job?

Yes that would be ok but I would prefer the one I pointed out as that just pushes the fluid in rather than vacuum the fluid through you have more chance of turning a seal with the vacuum one.

Do you need anymore help with this now.
