Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer
My son replaced the abs unit on my 1996 blazer(4 wheeldrive) now we can't get brake fluid to flow into the front calipers,we can still bleed the back brakes but the front does not bleed.
Loosen the front brake line that goes to the master cylinder fill master cylinder up with fluid and bleed it first by attaching a flexible line from master cylinder front brake side submerge that line into jar of brakefluid keeping air from entering line get someone to pump brake pedal while ur holding line in a jar keep refilling the brake resivoir so no air gets in, once the master is bled front brake side then reattach the origional brake line then remove bleed screw from caliper and let fluid gravity flow down to calliper then bleed the normal way. more than likely your master cylinder has air trapped in the front portion good luck
