Make sure the parking brake is not on, and that the brake adjuster is screw in all the way, adjust brakes after brake drum is on, from the back side on the backing plate, there will be a slot for adjustment, or you might have to knock out the tab, to be able to adjust brakes.

You have lost the little steel ball that actually seals the bleed hole. The screw itself does not seal. When screwed tight, the bleed screw pushes on a little ball (looks like a ball bearing) that blocks and seals the hole. This ball is very small, and it likely fell out when you removed the screw. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I need help on removing a broken bleeder valve on

Sorry to say, EZ outs usually just make the problem worse! Ideally, you need to remove the slave cylinder and put it in a drill vice on a drill press, then drill the stub out. You need to use a drill that is the size of the bottom of the threads so that you leave the thread coil behind - measure a good bleeder thread to get the size and thread pitch. Then either work the remaining thread coil out of the hole or re-tap the hole. If that fails, try a breakers yard for a used slave cylinder, but be sure to check this inside of the cylinder for corrosion before taking it away. Please rate this solution if you find it helpful.

My bleeding screw for the front brakes are both broke Wat should I do I have drums in the back on a 03 Malibu how can I bleed them


You use the bleeder on the rear drums to bleed those lines but you cannot do it to front brakes until you replace the bleeders up there.

Tip

Brake bleeding procedure (step by step)


Required tools and supplies:

Box-end wrench suitable for your car's bleeder screws.
(An offset head design usually works best)
Extra brake fluid (about 1 pint if you are just bleeding)
(3 if you are completely replacing the fluid)
12-inch long section of clear plastic tubing (sized to fit snugly over your car's bleeder screws)
Disposable bottle for waste fluid.
Brake cleaner.
One assistant
(to pump the brake pedal).


1. Open the hood and check the level of the brake fluid reservoir.

2.Add fluid as necessary to ensure that the level is at the MAX marking of the reservoir.

3.Do not let the reservoir become empty at any time during the bleeding process.

4. Begin at the corner furthest from the driver and proceed in order toward the driver.
(Right rear, left rear, right front, left front.)

This will also allow the system to be bled in such a way as to minimize the amount of potential
cross-contamination between the new and old fluid.

5. Locate the bleeder screw at the rear of the caliper body (or drum brake wheel cylinder.) (Remove the rubber cap from the bleeder screw)
6. Place the box-end wrench over the bleeder screw. An offset wrench works best since it allows the most room for movement.
7. Place one end of the clear plastic hose over the nipple of the bleeder screw.
8. Place the other end of the hose into the disposable bottle.
9. Place the bottle for waste fluid on top of the caliper body or drum assembly.
(Hold the bottle with one hand and grasp the wrench with the other hand)

10. Instruct the assistant to "apply." The assistant should pump the brake pedal three times,
hold the pedal down firmly, and respond with "applied." Instruct the assistant not to release
the brakes until told to do so.

11. Loosen the bleeder screw with a brief ¼ turn to release fluid into the waste line.
The screw only needs to be open for one second or less. (The brake pedal will "fall" to the floor
as the bleeder screw is opened. Instruct the assistant in advance not to release the brakes
until instructed to do so.)

12. Close the bleeder screw by tightening it gently.
13. Instruct the assistant to "release" the brakes. Note: do NOT release the brake pedal while
the bleeder screw is open, as this will **** air back into the system!

14. The assistant should respond with "released."
15. Inspect the fluid within the waste line for air bubbles.
16. Continue the bleeding process until air bubbles are no longer present.
Be sure to check the brake fluid level in the reservoir after bleeding each wheel!
Add fluid as necessary to keep the level at the MAX marking. (Typically, one repeats
this process 5-10 times per wheel when doing a ‘standard' bleed.)

17. Move systematically toward the driver – right rear, left rear, right front, left front -
repeating the bleeding process at each corner. Be sure to keep a watchful eye on the brake
fluid reservior and Keep it full

18. When all four corners have been bled, spray with brake cleaner and wipe dry with a clean rag.
Try to avoid spraying the brake cleaner DIRECTLY on any parts made of rubber or plastic, as the cleaner
can make these parts brittle.

19. Test the brake pedal for a firm feel.
(Be sure to inspect the bleeder screws and other fittings for signs of leakage. Correct as necessary.)

20.Road Test.

I don't see the brake bleeder nut on the rear of my 2001 Ford Taurus LX. Are they bleed from the front only?


Probably is broken off. In drum brakes cylinders,you can just bleed the brake cup by tilting it outward at the top,allowing bubbles to leave.
Disc brakes can't be done that way. You might loosen the brake line and see if bubbles will leave. It will be messy. don-ohio (:^)

How do I remove a drum brake bleeder?


some of these are tight and need more effort to loosen and sometimes you have to heat the area around the bleeder screw with a torch to loosen the bleeder. then there are times when no matter what you do you have to replace the bleeder.

How to bleed brakes on a 1992 Chevy Caprice. Specifically the rear drums


start from the fartherest place from brake master cylinder, that will be the rear passenger side wheel. it takes two people to bleed brakes. you will find the bleeder valve screws at the top of inside of the rear drums on both rear wheels, have someone pump the brakes up, will take at least 4 pumps of brake pedal, at 4th pump keep pressure on pedal while you break loose the bleeder valve on the rear wheel, fluid will come out and brake pedal will go down to floor, keep pressure on brake pedal until you've tightened the bleeder screw back [note] you'll only have to back the bleeder valve out about a half turn until you see the fluid come out. after you've done the rear brakes add brake fluid to the master cylinder as it will be low. then go to the front passeger side and you will find the bleeder screw on the brake caliper. repeat the same proceedure as back. remember that pressure on the pedal is a must until you've tightened those bleeder valve screws back or else it will **** air into the brake system. suggest that you bleed all 4 wheels not just the back. after you've bled the front make sure you add more brake fluid back to the master cylinder, it will be low again. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Brake line replacement


what i usually do if the money is available is purchase the brake lines in all sizes from the auto parts store and return any unused parts to the auto parts store,for a refund. they usually know the sizes you need ; you could also do the front first then the rear, or replace one line to get the size, also need a tubing bender to bend the brake lines, 'bleeder screws are usually three choices or go to ford or mercury, once you get started its not too bad, beware of compression fittings (unsafe to do it that way) Good Luck .
