After bleeding brakes still have spongy brakes


you still have some air in the lines. go back thru the bleed process again if that doesn't work, get to a power brake bleeder.(amazon about$70) that is a system that puts pressure on top of mc to push fluid thru the system as you open bleed screws. did you know you can adjust brakes by holding down lock button and pumping emergency brake handle. good luck

Not getting brake fluid to passenger rear brake


COMPLETE BRAKE SYSTEM NEEDS BLEEDING!, REMOVE BRAKE FLUID FILLER CAP TOP UP THE BRAKE FLUID IF LOW, RAISE THE VEHICLE & REMOVE THE WHEELS FOR EASE OF ACCESS THEN CRACK OFF THE BLEED NIPPLES ONE AT A TIME ATTACH HOSE TO A RECEPTACLE SUCH AS A JUG OR BUCKET & GET A FRIEND /WIFE/PARTNER/NEIGHBOR TO PUMP THE BRAKE PEDAL ON EACH BRAKE, WHEN NO AIR BUBBLES ARE SEEN & BRAKE FLUID RUNS CONTINUOUSLY REMOVE HOSE & TIGHTEN BRAKE BLEED NIPPLE, DO THIS THREE MORE TIMES ONCE ON EACH CORNER, NOT FORGETTING TO KEEP TOPPING UP THE BRAKE FLUID RESERVOIR OTHERWISE YOU WILL GET MORE AIR IN THE LINES & HAVE TO START ALL OVER AGAIN, ONCE DONE PUT THE WHEELS BACK ON , LOWER THE VEHICLE, MAKE SURE THE RESERVOIR IS AT THE RIGHT LEVEL & PUMP THE BRAKES A FEW TIMES, THE SPONGINESS WILL HAVE DISSIPATED & YOUR BRAKES WILL BE MUCH MORE RESPONSIVE.

SPONGY BRAKE PEDAL, EVERTHING IS AJUSTED OR NEW, PUMPS UP GOOD ENGINE OFF, SOFT ENGINE RUNNING


Sounds like you have air in the lines, or rear brakes out of adjustment. Make sure the rear brakes are adjusted correctly, then bleed the system. Hope this helps, TJ

I have recently had the front nearside brake replaced


sounds like you need to take it back to the mechanic and tell him this. then tell him to fix it correctly or pay for another shop to fix the problem. it seems that he is not getting it bleed correctly.

SPONGY BRAKE PEDAL


spongy brake pedal indicates air in the system... have the brakes inspected for leaks as it leaks when you apply the brakes and sucks in air when you release them.
