Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe
I just changed the brake pads on my Santa Fe (2001). My pedal is going to the floor now so I need to know how to bleed the line. I am not sure on this one. Could you let me know. Thanks alot.
There is a bleeder valve on the top of the caliper. Have another person pump the brake (WHILE THE CAR IS OFF) until the brake is solid with pressure. Now have them continue to apply pressure by slowly turning the bleeder valve counter clockwise until you hear air or see fluid being expelled. Once the brake pedal pumper has pushed the peddle to the floor have him keep pressure on the peddle until you re-tighten the bleeder valve. DO NOT HAVE HIM RELEASE PRESSURE WHILE THE VALVE IS OPEN or air can make its way to the master cylinder. Start with the tire furthest away from the master cylinder and work towards it. I know you are thinking, "but only one caliper has air in it". This does not matter once air is induced into the brake system. Each and every caliper must be bled to maintain safety and failure to do so can cost your your life along with someone elses.
