You really should go to a brake specialist for this job. It is not a task that one can do properly without any prior experience. Brakes are a VERY important part of the car--you do NOT want them to fail due to an improper installation. You would endanger not only yourself but other motorists and pedestrians. So please, spend the extra money and get it done at a local brake service center.

What's the break bleeding sequence for a 2006 scion xb? I was told left front, rear right, right front, left rear, like a cross pattern. Is this true?


I believe the bleeding pattern for any vehicle is furthest from the master cylinder first and so on the xb it would be rear pass 1st, rear driver 2nd, front pass. 3rd, and front driver last.

Hi. My Toyota Camry 1995 was failed in Rear Breaks test on breaks' capacity measuring machine by NZ Vehicle Testing despite replacing Break Drums and Break Pads with new ones. The cuase is adhered to...


The prop/valve is located near the rear of the car and is inbetween the front brakes and the rear brakes.It's job is to adjust the braking force between the front and rear wheels.If only one person is in the car,you get more braking force at the front wheels.If you have 4 people in the car and the boot is full of luggage,you will get more brake force directed to the rear brakes.What it prevents is the car from spinning out from a rear wheel lockup.
It will be located by looking at the rear suspension.A smallish metal rod will connect the suspension to the chassis of the car and it will be hooked up with the brake lines.As weight is loaded to the rear suspension,the rod will slightly move a small lever on the prop/valve.This is where you will see the adjustment.
Hope this helps you

Hi I changed the master cylinder in my 1977 f 150 and found I had leaks in the rear break line. I plugged off the rear break line at the master cylinder,hoping to at least have front breaks, however I...


Hi, if you plug the port, the plunger will not be able to build pressure in the front lines as the back brake section of the master will hold the plunger back. The proportioning valve will also not let you do this, as it is trying to strike a balance between the front and rear brake pressure. I'm afraid you need to repair the rear brake lines. This is not hard work, but it does require a brake line tool for cutting and flaring the lines. You may be able to borrow the tool, or check to see how much a brake place would actually charge to replace the lines. The supplies are cheap, and the labor isn't really very long--maybe a couple hours.

I havea 1990 cadillac sedan deville my break pedal


check the master cylinder. It may need to be replaced.. When replacing, make sure to bench bleed it as not doing so would void the warranty.

1994 Jimmy - Rear brakes are dominating after brake job


You need to bleed the whole system. Once this is done it should work better. Make sure you are not low on brake fluid. If the front brakes are disk brakes and the rear are drum breaks, the front really does most of the stopping, the back jjust keeps the car from spinning or swaying. But the main stopping power is in the front breaks. They need to be bled correctly, make sure brake fluid is up and make sure emergency break is not engaged. The emergency break uses a lever and cable to activate the rear brakes. The emergency breaks don't run off brake fluid...

please give good ratings, they are very important...

Spongy breaks


The reason for spongy breaks is because there is an air pcket tuck somewhere in the system. you will need to blead all the lines. start from the passengers rear thank go to the drivers rear than the passangers front than the drivers front. You need to kep fluid in the resivour while doing this. and you will need to look for a steady stream of brake fluid before closing the bleader valve or yo will not get the air pcket out of the line.
