Question about 1995 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
Changed front brake pads. Now I need to bleed the brakes. The brakes are not firm. I read to use a brake nipple to bleed. What and where the heck is that? Does this require taking for the tires off again to get to the caliber?
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.
