First -- make sure that you have brake fluid in the reservoir,, and on the back of the brake drums you will see where the brake lines enter the drum itself,, near there you will see a little ' zerk ' fitting -- to this fitting you should place a clear hose over this fitting and run it into a catch bottle,, now with the help of a buddy ( or wife ) -- have them sit in the car and get ready,, now you need to take a small wrench and turn ( counter clockwise ) the zerk fitting ( just a little ) --- while it is open have your helper step on the brake pedal AND HOLD DOWN to the floor,, at this point you need to close the zerk fitting --- have them release the pedal,, open the zerk again and have them press and hold the pedal again,, close the zerk and release the pedal,, do this 3 to 4 times until NO air bubbles can be seen through the clear hose --- also check and refill the reservoir to make sure you don't run it dry.
repeat this process on the other side. after both brakes have been done, check the brake pedal,, when you push down it should get hard ( stiffer ) ( pump a few times ) --- if it goes to the floor then you still have air in the system and need to repeat the bleeding process.

1995 buick lesabre. brakes are gone! fluid leaking from left rear brake.

If they are drum brakes then it is most likely the wheel cylinder. these are not expensive but you will need to replace the rear brake shoes and clean all the parts with brake clean. I recomend replacing the other cylinder while your at it.

How to bleed brakes on 98 regal, I changed rear brake lines but I don't think fluid is going thru the proportioning valve or ABS. I am used to the older brakes ( 70's and down.)

sometimes you can tap on the proportioning valve while someone pumps the brake if nothing breaks loose you may have to replace the valve.

You'll need to remove the 2 bolts that go thru the top of the shock and body. Then unbolt the lower shock thru bolt and remove. You might want to use some WD-40 to help loosen the rust on the bolts.
