Question about GMC Safari
To bleed the brakes start at the rear pass wheel. On each wheels brake cylinder will be a small bleed valve. The valve looks like a grease zert fitting, or a tube with hex flats to loosen with an end wrench. This job takes two people. Turn the ign. switch to the on position to activate the ABS system. and remove the reservoir lid. Be sure you have plenty of Brake fluid handy. fill the res. and lay the lid back on (be careful with brake fluid it can and will burn the paint off of the car) . Have your helper pump the brakes a few times and then hold the brake pedal down while you loosen the brake bleeder valve at the wheel cylinder, do not let the pedal up with the valve open.. Be sure you tell your helper to hold down the pedal until you have re-tightened the little valve. Next once you have fluid moving to the brake cyl. you are bleeding, move to the drivers side rear wheel and do the same, check the reservoir - keep it full so you do not **** air back in. Keep working around to the front pass side doing the same, pump. pump, hold - open the valve and bleed out the air, close the valve, pump, pump, pump, hold, bleed. Check the res. Move to the drivers side wheel and bleed it. Once you think your done do it again just to be sure. Start at the pass rear wheel, move around the car once more. pump, pump, pump, hold, bleed. Take your time be careful with the bleeder valves they may be very tight and try not to break them off. You only need tto loosen them a small bit to let air out. Hope this helps.
