To do it in a back yard the process is simple, but it requires two people.
first make sure the brake fluid reservoir is full, then locate the bleeder valve on the brake caliper, its not always required to take the tire off, but be prepared to remove the wheel. The bleeder valve looks the same as a grease fitting, or a brass nipple, its also likely covered in road grime and brake dust

the tools you need are likely a 3/8, 1/2, or 7/16 open end box end wrench, or just a small cresent, just make sure its tight arount the box part of the fitting so you dont mess it up, its made of brass.

ok, so one person is inside the vehicle and another is holding a wrench on the bleeder valve, once you have everything ready losen up the bleeder valve so its easy to turn. Have the person inside the vehicle pump up the brakes until they are hard and keep pressure on the brake pedal, then slowly turn the bleeder valve until fluid starts comming out, then tighten it back up, so you dont let air back in. then repeat as nessesary, then do it one more time just to make sure, then tighten the valve all the way, and repeat the process on the next wheel

be careful not to loosen the nipple too much or you could end up with fluid in your face or eye, which sucks, so take your time and dont get in a hurry, you are gonna lose some fluid through the process so dont fret about it just make sure you have enough fluid to compensate for the loss, also make sure the bleeder valve/ nipple is tight when you are done or you just undid everything you were working on, plus you wont have any brakes when you go to stop

Put in a new master cylinder and the brake booster and bleed the brakes..... brake still not catching... goes almost to the floor.... What next? (2006 dodge grand caravan)


have you replaced the front and rear brake pads (for older vehicles, rear wheels use brake shoes instead of brake pads). if yes, check your calipers. completely remove it from your tire and have it cleaned.
if the problem still persists, then its time to replace your hydrovac

My rear wheel locked up.


It sounds like the end has popped out of your wheel cylinder. You will have to take off the wheel, brake drum, and replace the wheel cylinder. It will then be necessary to bleed the entire brake system.If the brake shoes are soaked with brake fluid you will want to replace them. While the drum is off , double check that the wheel bearings are also OK.

Mushy or no breaks


bad master cylinder would be my first guess. also check if the fluid reservoir is empty, check if the rear wheel cylinder leaking. check if the front calipers are leaking also check the bleeder valves on the calipers and rear wheel cylinders to make sure they are not leaking. if everything is looking good top off brake fluid level and bleed the brakes.

On a dodge caravan the pedal goes to the end without brake


Abs system cannot permit air to enter the hydraulic system, You need to check everything for leaks. Likely you have slight seepage somewhere, likely at or in a line going to the wheel you found you had air again. Leak does not have to be large and at this point likely is leaving only damp residue. If air was in the front, also check inside the caliper piston boot....If at rear, check for dampness under the wheel cylinder end boots.

WHEEL CYLINDERS LEAKING


not a hard job, but like all things you better know what your doing. Replacing the wheel cylinders is easy but then you need to bleed the brake system of air bubbles. There are plenty of sources for this so just do some research. I have found the brake system weak on my 2000 caravan, so I need to do some research on better components.
