How do I bleed the brakes on a 2009 Pontiac G6?

when replacing the brakes you usually dont bleed the system ---usually bleed system when air gets in from like changing a line master cylinder or caliper-- and or master is empty .but to bleed you start at passenger rear first than drivers side rear,up to passenger side front ending at drivers side front

99 chevy malibu brake bleeding not working

if you are having this problem you will need a brake bleeding kit. this helps force the brake fluid round. the kit comes with all the fittings and you connect to a tyre valve, this primes the system so no need to pump the brake pedal, the kits are cheap and easy to use.

I recently added brake fluid to the car and now need to bleed the brakes and I was wondering if test driving a little would help bleed them to faster?

Don't drive it until you've properly bled the brakes! If you've needed to add fluid was it because you've changed a component or does it have a leak? If it's a leak, address that before doing anything else because the system will continue to get air in it if you don't.

Brakes go to floor changed master cylinder to no avail still to the floor

ok there are a few things you need to check.. you said you changed the master cylinder.. did you bleed the braking system after???

  • remove from wheel,,
  • locate bleed valve on caliper / or unscrew one of the lines
  • pump brake and push right down and hole,,
  • repeat plugging the lines with your finger ,,
  • repeat the above 2 steps a few times
  • tighten the bleed screw while holding the brake right down..
if that fails ...

if that fails try adjusting the brake up.. its on the rear tires,, remove one and them remove the shield protecting the brake shoe,, see the turn bolt that adjust the pistons,, adjust that a bit until the brake is in the desired position..

check your disc pads to see if its wron out..

check your booster / change it..

How do i change front brake hose on my 98 audi a4? where is it located?

Its located on the brake caliper and goes up to the brake line,To change just remove the high pressure fitting from both ends [very basic job]Fit the new pipe ,but now you have a new pipe but full of air!.To bleed out the new pipe just open the bleed screw [looks like a grease nipple on the top of the brake caliper]and connect a small piece of hose [must be a tight fit on the bleed screw]with the bleed screw loose and the hose fitted just fit the other end in to a container of brakefluid and press the brake slowly up and down till all the bubbles are gone{dont forget to top up your reservoir before you bleed it!!]as if the reservoir runs dry you will need a special bleeder to bleed the brakes [it requires 2 bar or 30 psi pressure to bleed out the system after the reservoir goes dry]

Hi there.... i just changed a brake line... i

fill up the master and leave the cap off. open up all the bleeders. allow to sit for 5-10 minutes. hopefully, it will start to gravity bleed. after this, close up all the bleeders and try again. sequence: right rear, left rear, right front, left front. it sounds as if you just have an excessive amount of air and it can sometimes be difficult to bleed. you may need to repeat this process several times.

Driver side brake not bleeding properly after bleeding left side and changing rotors, calipers, and pads?

first of all make sure master cylinder is full of brake fluid.then you crank car leave foot off brake pedal. watch abs light on dash it should turn off in 10 seconds if not have car towed to garage or dealer. they have to use a scanner to scan the abs brakes if abs light turn off in 3 seconds. then starting bleeding from master bleed the lower brake line fitting at the proportional valve followed by the upper brake line fitting. keep eye on brake fluid in mastercylinder dont let run prime the abs hydralic modulator.connect the bleeder hose to the rear bleeder valve on the the other end into a container partially filled with cleab brake fluid.make sure the end of the hose is the bleeder valve slowly about 1/2 to 3/4 turn have an assistant depress the brake pedal and hold it in the depressed position. when the flow of fluid ceases close the bleeder valve.repeat process until no air bubbles are present in the fluid.then tighten the bleed valve securely. start bleeding brakes. your bleeding sequence is right rear - left front - left rear - right front.WARNING IF ALL FAILS YOUR BRAKES DONT FEEL SOLID AND FEEL VERY SPONGY.DONT DRIVE CAR. HAVE IT TOWED TO DEALERSHIP.THEY WILL HAVE TO PRESSURE BLEED YOUR BRAKE SYSTEM.

05 chevy classic malibu do brakes need to be bled completely to change pads or just enough to compress piston and where is location of bleeder valve

You do not have to bleed them at all. Remove the cap off the master cylinder and you can then compress the caliber to remove the old pads and install new ones. No need to belled unless you replace the master cylinder or a caliber.

A bad brake booster will result in a hard brake pedal, stiff and more effort required to stop the truck. Here are my questions to you, first, you said you replaced the master cylinder, did you bench bleed it before you installed it? If not, there IS still air in it, regardless of how much you bleed the brakes at the wheels. Second, when you bled the brakes, after changing the calipers and master cyl., did you also bleed the proportioning valve? Sometimes air can get trapped in the valve, and its almost impossible to get it out bleeding just the wheels. And lastly, when the brake light comes on, does the abs light also come on with it? Air can also get trapped in the abs control module too.
