Question about 2002 Kia Sportage
Because this is brakes related I'm posting a disclaimer that if something happen to your or your vehicle as a result of following my instructions I take no fault and you know you are doing this work AT YOUR OWN RISK. first step, get help its not really that difficult however it is a 2 person job
I may have extra steps, but it will work although ALWAYS test your brakes before going onto the road after working on them.
you need to locate your bleeding valve it looks like a grease fitting
you will need a wrench that fits it, periodically check that you have lots of fluid in your reservoir or you will find yourself bleeding the entire system because of air bubbles..
okay have your helper fully press the brake peddle in, open the valve, close the valve, have them release and then repress the peddle, repeat this process until fluid runs out of the bleeding valve (note do not tighten the valve to much as you can break it), at this point tighten the valve have them repeat the brake pedal push one more time, tell them to make sure the pedal is all the way down, open the valve, while the fluid is spraying out, close it, have them pump the brake pedal and check for any leaks, put the tire and anything else you make have taken off which resulted in your needing to bleed the lines, have them hold the brake pedal and make sure the brakes are engaging properly by attempting to turn the tire, if the tired feels how it should, attempt a slow speed stop in your drive way moving in a safe direction before thinking about taking the car on the road, if you feel uncomfortable or nervous about doing this work yourself at all please take your vehicle in to a mechanic because im sure alot of people agree with me that the brakes in your vehicle is the most important system you have. you will live if your car doesn't start, but I can not make the same guarantee if it doesn't stop.
