Hi to bleed the brakes you need to do the following.

1 make sure fluid is topped up all the way
2, then start with one brake and undo the bleed screw use a container to catch any fluid that will come out, now with the bleed screw undone get someone to push the brake pedal down to the floor and hold it on the floor.
3 do bleed screw back up then get the person to pull the brake pedal back up it may be stiff but if you get your foot under you should be able to do it.
4 then once pedal is up undo bleed screw,
5 push pedal down
6 do bleed screw back up
7 pull pedal up
keep repeating that until all the air has stopped coming out, but make sure you keep an eye on the fluid level dont let it get low as you will have to bleed the whole system again

make sure you do the bleed screw up before pulling the brake pedal back up if you dont you will just be sucking air back into the system.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I have a 2006 grand vitara ... We have changed brakes all the way around and bleed them ... I am now having trouble with them still not catching ... Is there something we are not looking at ?????


If it has good pedal and just won't stop you probably are not getting any help from your power booster. Check for the vaccum hookup at the motor and on the front of the power booster behind the master cyclinder.

Tried to bleed brakes after replacing caliper-no brake fluid will flow out- is the master cylinder the problem?


Well, if you change a caliper or a brake line the fluid in the master cylinder should remain, even if the fluid leaks out.

However, if you are having trouble bleeding regularly, then use a vacuum pump with a 'can' or use a pressure bleeder (I prefer this method) that costs about $55 or so available on the Internet.

If you use a pressure bleeder, you'll need an extra master cylinder cap that has a hole drilled in it to accomodate the fittings of the pressure bleeder.

I know someone who had a Lincoln Continental that changed a brake line and had trouble bleeding it, and they used a vacuum pump and it bled easily using that method.

Some cars require that when you change the master cylinder, a brake scan tool is required to bleed the master cylinder that has air in it. But, if you did not replace the master cylinder, you should be able to use either the vacuum or pressure method to bleed the brakes easily.

Good luck on this repair.

How to trouble shoot the brake system?


To trouble shoot the brake system you have to check:AntiLock Brake System ABS:
Hydraulic Modulator
Basically this unit holds steady or bleeds off pressure in brake line, as necessary, when the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) detects an abnormal deceleration in the speed of the wheel. On 2000 and later models the EBCM and Brake Pressure Modulator Valve (BPMV) are mounted on a bracket attached on the left strut tower.
Wheel Speed Sensors, brake fluid level, brake hoses and lines, inspect and replacement, Brake hydraulic system-bleeding, Brake light switch, check, adjustment and replacement.
Disk brake caliper, disk brake pads, drum brake shoes, master cylinder, master cylinder reservoir, O-rings replacement, parking brake adjustment, parking brake cables inspect and replacement, parking brake shoes-replacement, power brake booster, check or replacement, wheel cylinder inspect and replace.

I am working on a 2004 dodge caravan with a soft brake problem.i have replaced the rear shoes and adjusted rear brakes,also replaced front rotors and pads.i have also replaced the master cylinder.after...


try bleeding the master cylinder at the lines first as it indicates that there is still air in the pistons
loosen one line at a time and gently apply the brakes until any air bubbles come out tighten the line before releasing the brake pedal
do it for the other line and then bleed all the brakes starting at the longest line first and ending at the shortest line

Brake bleeding


if you didn't bleed the lines after putting the master in. then there is a good chance there is air in the lines now. may go through a quart of brake fluid before all the air is out. remember to start at r-rear/ l-rear/ r-front/ l-front last.will take some time. don't forget to adjust the rear brake while your there to help with the pedal

1986 Ford E-150 Brake line problem


when you bleed the brakes start from the p/s rear then d/s and so on make sure to crack the bleed screw and not the bleed nut also check the brake booster for correct movement thats what opens the pistons on the master cylinder
