Yes you have to leave the screws open on the bleeding caps, go and get in the car and pump the brake pedal until the break fluid leaks through

Need to replace front left brake hose


There are a few reasons to replace the front brake hose on your vehicle. The most common reason that you would need to change the hose is a leak. If you have a leak in your brake hose, it can cause your brakes to malfunction. The front brake hose supplies brake fluid to your front brakes. The front brake hose runs from your brakes' master cylinder to your front brake calipers. When the brake calipers do not have the required amount of brake fluid, they will not push down the brake pads on the rotor and stop your vehicle. However, replacing the front brake hose on your vehicle is not a hard project. Though this is an easy repair, there are a few very important steps that you must follow to ensure your vehicle is safe. Follow these steps to replace your front brake hose and get your vehicle safely back on the road.


Step 1 - Set Up

The first thing you need to do for this repair is to jack up your vehicle and remove the tire. Place your jack stand in safe area so that the vehicle can not fall. This is a very important safety measure. Next, place a container under the front brake hose. This will catch the brake fluid for proper disposal.
Step 2 - Remove Old Hose

Before you can put on your new front brake hose, you have to remove the old one. To do this, take your line wrench and back out the hose fitting in the master cylinder. After you have that fitting loose, remove the fitting on the brake caliber. Once you have the hose loose, use a screwdriver to remove the hose clamps that hold the hose in place.
Step 3 - Installing New Hose

Now that you have the old front brake hose removed, you are ready to install the new hose. This is the reverse process to step 2. First, take your line wrench and tighten the hose fitting back into the master cylinder. Next, attach the other end of the hose into the brake caliber. Finally, reattach the hose clamps to keep the hose in place.

When tightening the hose, it is very important not to cross tread the fitting. This will cause the fitting to leak. Also be careful to not overtighten. You can easily break or crack the fitting.
Step 4 - Bleeding the Brakes

The final and most important step in the repair is to bleed the brakes, which involves getting all the air out of the front brake hose. This will make your brakes work properly. To bleed the brakes, you need someone to work the brake pedal on the inside of the vehicle. You need to stay near the brake caliber.

Have the person inside the vehicle pump the brakes 3 times and hold the pedal down on the third time. While he is holding the pedal, you need to back off the nut and the caliber. Do this process a few times until all the air is out. Then replace the wheel and test drive your vehicle.

How to replace brake pads on 2006 oddesey


Raise and secure on stands after breaking loose the lug nuts and parking brake on for front pads.. Remove wheels and spread old pads back to push cylinders back in their bores on calibers to allow for thickness of new pads. Remove the 2 sliding claiber retaining bolts and rotate caliber out of mount and secure with wire, boungie cord, or rope to take weight of caliber brake hose. Remove old pads, install new, and reassemble in reverse order. Lugs on alloy wheel should be torgued to 95 foot lbs. Block front wheels, release parking brake,and do the back ones the same way. After completing, pump brake pedal slowly several times to seat new pads. If you move the MPV without pumping first, you will have no brakes to stop. If brake fluid level is high in master cylinder, you will need to take some out first to make room for returning fluid from caliber pistons being returned to their bores prior to any brake work. Rotors should be replaced or turned if scored or warped to have better clapping of pads to rotor surface.

1999 Chevy Tahoe- Soft Brake Pedal


Try having the dealer flush and bleed your system. It is very hard to bleed ABS systems yourself and have safe brakes that still work afterward. Bleeding non-ABS brakes yourself is easy not the same for ABS brakes. Valving, sensors and what-not require a tech and the correct equipment in my opinion. You do it wrong and you could ruin your ABS system. Do that and see if they firm up. I replaced my brake shoes/pads at the same time all new everything in back, drums/springs everything and new rotors up front. then I had the chevy dealer flush, refill and bleed system. Stiffer pedal and brakes work better. Keep in mind the brakes on 99 Tahoes are inaedequate, require new rotors often, heat up and fade/glaze pads regularly. I replace my pads long before they wear down because they glaze up and start fading early. I'll rough em up once maybe, next time, new ones. Every two brake jobs, new rotors for me. Just how it is. They will stiffen a bit and work better but they will never be awesome brakes. Just how it is on 99 and earlier Tahoes. Hope it helps. Very important to bleed correctly though. I'll bleed my 83 Toyota 4x4 myself but not the Tahoe.

Changed brake pads! Success.. Now I need to bleed the brakes.


To bleed you brake system, you will need brake fluid, a jar, and a couple feet of small hose that fits tightly on the bleeder screws. You should not need to remove the tires to access the bleeder screws, but you may need to raise the vehicle a bit to access them.

To bleed the system, start with the right rear wheel. Put a couple inches of brake fluid in the jar, attach the hose to the bleeder screw, put the hose in the jar of brake fluid, then open the bleeder screw. Once the bleeder screw is open, pump the brake several times. Next, close the bleeder screw. After you close the bleeder screw, remove the hose and jar, then fill the master cylinder with brake fluid.
Repeat the steps going to the left rear second, right front third, and left front last.

Once you have bled the system your brakes should be tight and working nice.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Front calibers keep locking up on my 96 dodge dakota 5.2


I would replace the rubber brake hoses at the calipers. They get damaged internally when the calipers are left hanging while replacing pads. I've seen too many garages and shops do it not knowing what is going on inside the hose.
