Try opening all 4 bleaders and using very little pressure on the peddle like very slowly to the floor an having somone watching the bleeders.once the fluid starts to drip close bleader until all 4 are done,make sure not to drain the reservoir.do not exerte pressure on the peddle.nex step reblead each wheel .if this does not work,the master is most likely defective.Good luck.

Brakes wont bleed out even after new master cylinder, calipers, rotors and pad


undo the lines at the master cylinder and place your fingers over the holes to act as one way valves . Have a friend gently pump the brakes and release any air in the cylinder. Replace the lines and start at the longest line working back to the shortest. IF that dosen't work you may have to pressure bleed the system. It is not normal to prime a new master cylinder but I make it a practice using a rod I pump the m/cyl before fitting it in the car. It saves a lot of heart ache.

I cant get the brake disc to push back in to replace the brake pads. Is there a switch in the Master Resevoir that I have to open and if so how?


No, see procedure below listed at autozone.com. Try opening bleeder. You may have a kink somewhere or hose decomposing internally. Else the piston is locked in place. Was the brake working before replacing pads?

  1. Remove 1 / 2 of the volume of brake fluid from the master cylinder to prevent overflow when the caliper piston is compressed.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheel and tire assemblies.
  4. Remove the brake caliper without disconnecting the brake line. Support the caliper with a length of wire. Do not let the caliper hang from the brake hose.
    NOTE On some disc brake systems it is not necessary to remove the caliper when installing new brake pads. Remove the lower slide bolt and rotate the caliper upward to remove the pads.
  5. Remove the brake pads and shims. Inspect the brake rotor and machine or replace as necessary. Check the minimum thickness (specification is cast into the rotor) before machining.

To install:
  1. Use a suitable tool to push the caliper piston into its bore.
  2. Apply a thin coat of grease to the rear face of the brake pad and install the shim. Install the brake pads.
  3. Install the calipers. Lubricate the caliper bolts and boots. If equipped with a 4-cylinder engine, tighten the caliper mounting bolts to 24 ft. lbs. (33 Nm). If equipped with a 6-cylinder engine, tighten the caliper mounting bolts to 54 ft. lbs. (74 Nm).
  4. Install the wheel and tire assemblies and lower the vehicle.
  5. Apply the brakes several times to seat the pads before moving the vehicle. Check the fluid in the master cylinder and add as necessary.

Good afternoon, I have a Skoda Fabia Combi 1.4 TDI...


It can be the wheel Hub bearings. The rotors if warped will wear out pads early. Bad calipers are another possibility as well as a bad Master cylinder.

If the Hub bearings are bad your tires will have cupping. If the tires are okay the rotors are warping from contact with the pads. The pads won't release if the calipers are jamming OR the Master Cylinder is keeping pressure to the calipers.

You can get a pressure check done on the Master cylinder to see if the pressure is releasing when your foot is off the brake. If the pressure is releasing then the calipers are probably sticking. Make sure to use new brake hardware and a lubricate for the hardware when you assemble the calipers.

How do i remove front pads from 89 probe?


the caliper has 2 bolts holding it in.remove the bolts.slide off the caliper and replace the pads.you need to put a lubricant on the pads,and compress the pistons in all the way with a caliper piston tool,costs about 10 dollars.,or the new pads which are much thicker will not go on.also lube the bolts,known as slider pins or they can jam up.if there is brake pulsation you need to turn the rotors.to remove the rotors ,you need to remove the bracket that the caliper bolts to.there are 2 bolts holding on the bracket.then the rotor can come off to be turned.if the rotors are not thick enough after turning,,they need to be replaced
