What bolt did you remove? If you removed the bleeder screw make sure its tight. If you removed the bolt going though the fitting for the brake line make sure the copper washer are in place and not damaged.

Does it leak in a threaded area? if so maybe not in secure or when tightening it you crossed the treads.

I haven\'t see clearly what it happened behind the wheel,but I believe you probably have either burst brake hose or brake caliper leak fron the piston. Now if is the brake hose follow this procedure.: Jack up the car,put a stand for safety,remove the wheel to have easy access. If the caliper is located towards dash direction turn the wheel to the right,if is on the front of the wheel turn it to the left,Open the bonnet and go by the brakes master cylinder which is the one who has the canister with the brake fluid in. Remove the cap and suck out the remained brake fluid. Go back to the wheel and by using an 8-9mm or 10-11mm spanner loose the top of the hose connected to the metallic pipe comes from master cylinder. Remove the clip holding the hose on the bracket, Then come back to the wheel where the other end is connected and loose the bolt or the nut or unscrewed the hose itself from the caliper. Bear in mind that if is with bolt and is a hole end hose should be 2 bronze washers,do not loose them. buy new hose, go fitting vice versa and tight everything. Fill the canister on the master cylinder and give it few gentle brake pumps from the brake pedal, Go back to the wheel and open the brake bleeding nipple which is located on the caliper and loose it. Leave it loose till the brake fluid comes out without bubbles,just clean fluid. You must also go on the other side and do the same for bleeding. Always follow the topping up fluid the canister. when ready as you do self bleeding way, put the wheel back off the stand and jack and start the car and apply brakes to confirm that the brakes are working correctly.. if is the caliper leak then you must ask an expert to do it for you. Good luck.

SOURCE: brake leak and brake pedal to the floor to stop

First, I always recommend replacing brakes and bearings by the axle (in other words, both front wheels or both rear wheels). The reason for this is that likely as not the other side of the axle has the same problem and is also failing or ready to fail... Having said that I think that the most likely cause of this particular problem is a leaking brake hose. It is common for mechanics to mistakenly let the caliper assembly hang by the hose during service work... if this is the case then the guys who did the bearings should replace the hose and bleed the system. If this is what happened then you are totally right to ask them to do this as it is a safety issue!

SOURCE: back right brake caliper leaking brake fluid

Sounds like the brake line is just rusted, you'll probably have to change the brake line and then bleed the brakes

Car wont stop

Rear brakes are usually disc, and not might not see fluid 'squirting' out if they are drum. If you can remove the rear tires/wheels, and the drums, you may find you leak in a wheel cylinder.

If they are all four disc brakes, you will find the leak if there is one by parking overnight on cardboard squares under each wheel.

Ok about a month ago my rear passenger brake locked up when it was wet. It slid a little but I got stopped. It only did it that one time. And about 3 weeks ago I drove it to the store that night and it...

They're probably right probably is the master cylinder but now you have Air the lines so you will have to fill up resivor then pump the brakes up and crack the line then you will need to keep the brake pedal depressed till you close the line it takes 2 people repeat process over and over till fluid comes at you must remember to fill the main reservar as you do this if you get all the air and still have brake problems it means that it probably is the master cylinder but it doesn't hurt to change the brake fluid at anyway

What causes the break light swich to push, ive took apart the swich and can push it and break lights worked but when i put swich back on with clip it dose not work when i hit the break peddel

nothing, It doesn't work like that, when your brake switch is mounted , correctly , your pedal has a bracket on it that pushes the switch plunger in so brake lights are off. when you push brake pedal in, to stop vehicle, the switch plunger (spring loaded) comes out to turn brake lights ON ! get it ? when you release pedal it pushes plunger in, to turn lights OFF !

Change front callipa oo 2001 grand cherekee jeep ltd 3.1 .is it a diy repair

Changing the front caliper is fairly easy. You take two bolts out located behind it, top and bottom. You take out the brake pads and unfasten the line. I would unfasten the line first. To put it back on you reverse the process.The hard part is bleeding the line after it's reassembled. This takes two people. Ableeder valve is located on the back of the caliper. It looks like a tiny hose attachment. loosen this up and put your finger on it while another person pumps the breaks. When you feel the pressure build up you take your finger off and repeat the process. Now you will use a wrench and tighten the bleeder. Have the other person pump the brakes up to ten times and hold the pedal down. While holding the pedal down you will loosen the bleeder. Brake fluid will squirt out along with the air that was in the line. When pedal is to the floor and pressure is gone repeat the process until you no longer hear it squirting out. If it makes a squirting sound there is still air in the line.

Break pressure

Make sure you are trying to bleed the system in this order (Right rear, Left rear, Right front, Left front). If you are doing this and still not getting pressure, you should check the brake lines going to the rear for leaks. If you find a leak, replace that segment of line, bleed the system again and problem should be solved.
