For Jaguar 2000-06 - Bleeding the Brake System (Repair Guide)

WARNING Brake Fluid contains polyglycol ethers and polyglycols. Avoid contact with the eyes. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. If brake fluid contacts the eyes, flush the eyes for 15 minutes with cold running water. Get medical attention if irritation persists. If taken internally, drink water and induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately. Failure to follow these instructions can result in personal injury.
CAUTION Make sure that the vehicle is standing on a level surface or supported on a wheel free lift.
CAUTION If brake fluid is spilt on the paintwork, the affected areas must be immediately washed down with cold water.
CAUTION Make sure that the filler cap does not become contaminated.
NOTE The system consists of separate circuits for each front and diagonally opposite rear wheel. Each front to rear circuit and each wheel circuit can be bled individually of each other.
NOTE The service ABS hydraulic control unit is supplied pre-filled with brake fluid. Therefore, a conventional bleed procedure should be adequate to remove all the air from the brake system.

  1. Remove the master cylinder reservoir filler cap.
  2. Fill up the master cylinder reservoir to the MAX mark as necessary.
  3. Install a bleed tube to the rear right-hand brake caliper bleed nipple.
  4. Bleed the circuit by performing the following:
    Make sure the bleed tube is firmly attached to the bleed nipple. Submerge the end of the bleed tube in a bleed jar containing a small quantity of approved brake fluid. Position the bleed jar base at least 300 mm above the bleed nipple to maintain fluid pressure and prevent air leaking past the bleed nipple threads. Open the bleed nipple half a turn. Slowly apply the brake pedal to its maximum travel (this forces brake fluid into the bleed jar). Close the bleed nipple. Return the brake pedal to the rest position. Wait 2 seconds to allow the brake fluid to replenish the system. Fill up the master cylinder reservoir to the MAX mark as necessary. Continue to bleed the circuit until air-free brake fluid is pumped into the jar. Fully tighten the bleed nipple.
  5. Repeat the procedure for the rear left, front right and front left-hand brake circuits.
  6. Fill up the master cylinder reservoir to the MAX mark.
  7. Install the master cylinder reservoir cap.
I hope helps.

Brake problem

If you have broken the brake lines loose from the brake system anywere, thenit will have to bleed the air out of the brake lines. Check the fluid level in the master cylinder and keep it full while bleeding the brakes. Also you could have a leaking caliper on the car. Hope this will help you.

Brake problem

hi this is air in the system if you pump them do they go hard as normal? what you will need to do is , starting from the furthest caliper away from the fluid bottle you have to bleed the air out, you can buy bleeding systems for a few bucks/pounds but you can also do it yourself, to do this, find a length of small bore clear hose/pipe, locate the bleed nipple on the caliper, find a wrench/spanner that will fit the bleed nipple, put that on first, then get your pipe/hose, and slide that over the end of the bleed nipple ( make sure the pipe/hose is a nice tight fit ) locate a small clear glass jar partly fill it with brake fluid, put the hose/pipe into the jar so the fluid covers the end ( we don't want air to go up the pipe/hose ) then get a friend to pump hard on the brake pedal till it goes hard, and when it does tell them to keep their foot hard on the pedal , you then undo the bleed nipple ( you should get some fluid come out fast) when the pedal reaches the floor ( this happens immediately if you have opened the nipple far enough, then when it has hit the floor do the bleed nipple up again before they raise the pedal keep doing this till you see no bubbles coming through the hose/pipe, repeat the operation on the next furthest away, and so on till all the air has been removed from the system, be sure to check the fluid in the reservoir regularly as this will cause air to get back into the system again if it runs to low....hope this has helped and good luck, please vote thanks
