I have done this on the '97 V70 but decided to have a new set of nipples on hand- covering the header tank with a thin piece of plastic and then screwing the top on will eliminate most of the fluid loss if not all.
Also used the bleed pipe with integral one way valve (ebay) otherwise quite straight forward following the bleed sequence etc.
Thanks Bob,

Alway keep nipple free, I release them everytime I service the brakes, plus laterly I have fitted s/steel nipples. Yep, got one of those One-Way bleed pipes.
