How to bleed front brakes on 1997 mark 8 lincoln

You need a special tool to bleed the brakes because of the ABS system. Any shop that does brakes will have the tool (tire shops are good places to go cost wise), the special tool is very expensive so buying it is not an option, just have them bleed the brakes for you.

2004 cavalier can,t get front brakes to bleed blew left front hose to caliper had to replace

make sure you have brake fluid in the reservoir, make sure the bleeder bolt is loosened 1/4 to 1/2 turn (be careful, they are easily damaged, trust me) also have the engine running when you bleed it, then you have the brake booster assisting you. if you need more help go ahead and ask.

Need to replace the front & rear brakes . Is there any special tools needed to do this job .

For caliper brakes, mainly a large C-clamp or brake cylinder piston tool, to collapes the piston back into the caliper, to install the new pads. If you have rear drum brakes, they make a couple different brake spring tools for removing the springs on the brake shoes.

The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.

On one of the front driver side pads there is a sensor for low pads. He either did not hook it back up or got a lose connection to it.
