Do it your self way(my way) --go to your local auto parts store & get a 1-man brake bleader kit---Usually on the misc. tool display----You'll need an a aprox. 8 oz jar (clear)---FIRST-(my way) take out the blead-screws and use teflon tape on the bleed screws---tighten all bleed screws "SNUG"---Front brakes sorta easy, jack-up front of car and turn wheels-one way or the other for easy access to bleed screws, open-up left bleed screw a "FUZZ", pump the brake peddle slow/wyour head looking under the car watching the "JAR" the brake fluid and cylinder the kit is hooked-up to----from there READ-THE-DIRECTIONS-ON-THE KIT---It's easy after the first time---NITRO NELLY--

I replaced master cylinder bleed brakes back brakes working but no brakes front . No brake fluid on bleeders in front . What next to do . Toyota cressida 1985 2.8i automatic

Bleed front more. If needed, remove line from each front caliper to ensure fluid is flowing. If no fluid movement you may have a bad master cyl.

Brake fluid leak is seen at the rear driver side near gas tank how do I repalce this line?

I would strongly suggest that unless you have a brake flair kit,and know how to bleed brake lines you leave this job to a mechanic.This is not the kind of job a novice should be tinkering with,unless you have an experienced friend that can help you.A brake job that is not done properly can be life threatening.Please take my advice on this ,it may not be what you want to hear but it is the truth.Good Luck

While bleeding the brakes on my 1985 vw cabriolet, I noticed that the left rear wheel cylinder and right front caliper had very little fluid comming out of them and the other two were bleeding great. What...

you have whats called a triangulated brake system (2xfront/1x rear)with a brake compensating valve( just in front of the rear axle)which helps to stop the rear wheels from locking,because of the different pipe lengths it is normal for this to happen.but for the life of me i cannot remember which wheel you srtart to bleed,and in what order....... (stopped working for vw 10 years ago)

Brake pedal goes to floor

If there is still no pedal, there must be air in the line. Continue to bleed the line until a solid stream comes out, and the pedal pressure becomes firm.
