There is 3 ways. 1 by yourself, you can let gravity help. Start with the farthest wheel. Open the valve and let the fluid run into a catch can. Not for long, and do this several times per wheel. Check your fluid reservoir often.
2 With help, have someone pump up the brake pedal and hold it. Open valve, then close it then let off pedal. Do this several times per wheel. Check reservoir often.
3 Use a brake bleeding tool. Some auto parts stores will rent them. Follow the instruction.

Remove the wheel,take the caliper off like you would do to change the brakes,follow the brakeline up to the master cylinder,unscrew it, go back down to the caliper and remove the bolt holding it to the caliper.( its best to drain the brake reservoir before you do this. Bleed the brakes when you are done)

Front brakes wont fully release

There's air in the hydraulic system - bleed the brakelines to get rid of any air in the system. When braking air get compressed to a tiny pocket, when releasing it expansed and cause the brakes to still hang on to the disk for a while.

My brake peddle is to the floor. Can hardly stop. Is it the brakeline/

Do not drive the vehicle until it has been repaired. You will endanger your own life and others. The problem could be worn out brake pads and brake shoes, leaking brake fluid at the wheel cylinders or calipers. Have you checked the brake fluid reservoir to see if it needs fluid? Make sure it is full of brake fluid. With the engine running, pump the brake pedal several times. If it comes back up, then slowly bleeds back down, youv;e either got air in the brake lines or you are leaking brake fluid. You need to have the brakes repaired as soon as possible.

How do i bleed the brake system

First, before you do the bleeding, did you "open" any of the lines? Was there a caliper replaced?

If no line was opened, you do not need to bleed the brakes.

If so, please let me know and I will post the bleed procedures for you.

Why are you thinking about bleeding the brakes? Spongy brake pedal?

It is possible to replace a bad portion of brake line using compression fittings,and alot of parts stores do fabricate and sell brakeline if you take the old piece(s) in for a reference.If you do pull the line from the resevoir your going to have to bleed the entire system incuding the master cylinder,If you have the means I would reccomend taking it to a shop that specializes in brakes,they have the tools and experience to do the job correctly and it really shouldn't be to expensive.If you are going to DIY write me back and I'll give you a walk through on the procedure.
