How to bleed brakes on a gand pree?
You will need two people, one to pump the pedal and one to open bleeders at the wheels. Start at the right rear wheel open bleeder and have someone press the brake pedal down and hold it (do not release pedal until bleeder is closed), close the bleeder and repeat until no air is coming out. Proceed to right rear wheel repeat above prceedure, proceed to right front wheel repeat above, go to left front wheel repeat above, and then check pedal for proper feel if it is a solid pedal with no fade then you have finished. If you have a low pedal or fade then bleed master cylinder. You can bleed master by breaking loose the rear line (do not loosen line all the way) just enough that fluid comes out when pedal is pressed and held. Have some press the pedal while line is loose and hold it, tighten line and repeat until no air comes out, repeat same proceedure with the front line. If you still have a low pedal or fade then you may have a leak somewhere or a faulty master cylinder.
