Slow bleeding of my 3 series bmw car in brake caliper in rear..


are you replacing pads? rear brakes have less work to do theres probably some kind of bias valve sorting out which wheel needs most pressure,any thing else like a sticky caliper or damage to any of the pipes

Bmw powersteering fault still no powersteering with new pump fitted


Who fitted the pump?

If the pump was fitted wrong it may have air in the pipes, it might need bleeding through, alternatively the fault could be the power steering rack and not the pump.

Hope this helps,
Regards

DSC control unit repair kit uncoded part. When i put this on will i have have brakes if air get into line.?.


Think of brake fluid as being a flexible piston. When you push your foot on the brake pedal the fluid is pushed out of the master cylinder and along the pipes and into the wheel cylinders, where it pushes out the pistons and in turn pushes the pads to contact the discs....If air gets into the system, the brakes become spongy and only effective when you pump them, which in fact is compressing the air. You can end up with no brakes at a time when you really need them urgently.
Air will enter whenever the system is opened, and the only way to expel the air is by bleeding.
Begin with the wheel furthest from the master cylinder and move one closer each time, ending with the closest wheel.
Have a good friend sitting inside the car.....and prepare whoever for some exercise....
Someone else should be outside ready to top up the brake fluid reservoir, each time the bleed nipple is opened and then closed....
Take an empty bottle and a tight fitting length of plastic pipe, Pour some fluid into the bottle so the end of the pipe can remain covered at all times. Fit the pipe over the bleed nipple....Shout to your friend inside..."PUMP!"....Then wait for your good friend to do just that.
The pedal should be depressed as far as possible each time and then after four or five pumping actions, shout "DOWN" at which time your good friend should hold the pedal as far down as it will travel...
You in your comfortable place laying under the car, should open the nipple and while the pedal is down close it again....Repeat until all air is expelled....
The pedal will become progressively harder, but must be pushed with force to the floor and remain there without being lifted, at all until the nipple is closed each each time the nipple is opened....
Do this to each wheel in turn and if the pedal still feels spongy when you've finished....you haven't finished....I love this part!.... So begin again!... No really I'm not a sadist....promise I'm not....
Best regards Johngee10
Ps. Don't fall asleep under the car, your friends may become upset with you.

I have a 2001 BMW 318I, E46 MODEL , HOW DO YOU FIT BRAKE PADS TO FRONT AND REAR, THANKS TREVOR.


YOU NEED A PISTON COMPRESS TOOL TO PRESS PISTON BACK IN THE BORE WITH THE BLEEDER SCREW OPEN ON THE CALIPER*.CLOSE BLEEDER SCREW JUST BEFORE THE CALIPER PISTON IS PUSHED FULLY INTO CALIPER.THIS WILL ALLOW ROOM FOR NEW BRAKE PADS AND CALIPER FIT OVER THE BRAKE ROTOR.WHEN FINISH.PUTTING BRAKE PADS ON YOU HAVE TO BLEED BRAKE SYSTEM.DONT DRIVE VECHICLE IF YOU CANT GET A GOOD FIRM BRAKES.

Brake problem


hi this is air in the system if you pump them do they go hard as normal? what you will need to do is , starting from the furthest caliper away from the fluid bottle you have to bleed the air out, you can buy bleeding systems for a few bucks/pounds but you can also do it yourself, to do this, find a length of small bore clear hose/pipe, locate the bleed nipple on the caliper, find a wrench/spanner that will fit the bleed nipple, put that on first, then get your pipe/hose, and slide that over the end of the bleed nipple ( make sure the pipe/hose is a nice tight fit ) locate a small clear glass jar partly fill it with brake fluid, put the hose/pipe into the jar so the fluid covers the end ( we don't want air to go up the pipe/hose ) then get a friend to pump hard on the brake pedal till it goes hard, and when it does tell them to keep their foot hard on the pedal , you then undo the bleed nipple ( you should get some fluid come out fast) when the pedal reaches the floor ( this happens immediately if you have opened the nipple far enough, then when it has hit the floor do the bleed nipple up again before they raise the pedal keep doing this till you see no bubbles coming through the hose/pipe, repeat the operation on the next furthest away, and so on till all the air has been removed from the system, be sure to check the fluid in the reservoir regularly as this will cause air to get back into the system again if it runs to low....hope this has helped and good luck, please vote thanks

How do i change front brake hose on my 98 audi a4? where is it located?


Its located on the brake caliper and goes up to the brake line,To change just remove the high pressure fitting from both ends [very basic job]Fit the new pipe ,but now you have a new pipe but full of air!.To bleed out the new pipe just open the bleed screw [looks like a grease nipple on the top of the brake caliper]and connect a small piece of hose [must be a tight fit on the bleed screw]with the bleed screw loose and the hose fitted just fit the other end in to a container of brakefluid and press the brake slowly up and down till all the bubbles are gone{dont forget to top up your reservoir before you bleed it!!]as if the reservoir runs dry you will need a special bleeder to bleed the brakes [it requires 2 bar or 30 psi pressure to bleed out the system after the reservoir goes dry]

Need to replace brake line going to drivers side


You can take the line off and take to a parts store that sells metal brake pipes by the foot,there is different size pipes as well as flared end nuts.You will have to bend the pipe to fit then bleed the brake system.Iwould suggest to take it to a shop and have a pipe made up.
