Sorry to say, EZ outs usually just make the problem worse! Ideally, you need to remove the slave cylinder and put it in a drill vice on a drill press, then drill the stub out. You need to use a drill that is the size of the bottom of the threads so that you leave the thread coil behind - measure a good bleeder thread to get the size and thread pitch. Then either work the remaining thread coil out of the hole or re-tap the hole. If that fails, try a breakers yard for a used slave cylinder, but be sure to check this inside of the cylinder for corrosion before taking it away. Please rate this solution if you find it helpful.

    This is for the rear hub itself. The bleeder screw is broke off in the hub. Not the slave cylinder

You most likely would do better to just replace the wheel cylinder-they are only about $10 these days and arent hard to take off. Good luck!

    Thanks! And to take that off I take off the rear hub and whole brake assembly right?

    unfortunately most of it yes. But it wont be that bad if you just take off the springs after pulling the wheel and drum. the shoes can stay on and the emergency brake cable can also. Unless you find you need to replace them-but I`m guessing you just did that?

  • koltonraygan May 20, 2011

    No I actually just had to change out the rear end! And I had to cut the e brake cable to get it off so it sounds like all I gotta do is take off the springs.?

  • John Ziehm
    John Ziehm May 20, 2011

    if you do it right you should be able to take off the spring on top and the emergency and then just spread them-but if you have to take it all off its not that bad.

    Okay cool! Thanks for the help!

Where are back bleeder screws on chevy truck?


If you mean for the rear brakes, and you have drum brakes on the rear, the bleed valves are on the back side of the wheels. Look for where the brake line goes to the wheel brake cylinders, and on top of the small brake cylinder is the bleed valve.

1993 buick regal breaks went


Hi again: I'm almost 100% its your Master Cylinder has gone bad.And needs replaced. Should solve your Problem. After you Change it and have the New one on,You'll need a Couple Quarts of Brake Fluid, Cause you'll have to bled the Air out of the System, and 2 Qts so you can Flush out ALL your Old Brake Fluid its probally contaminated. To Bled Start at the Passenger Rear Wheel, next Drivers rear Wheel, Next Pasengers Front Wheel,And Last Drivers Side Front Wheel. You'll need a Helper for for 2 reasons 1st reason he wil need to push the Brake Pedal to the Floor HOLD it UNTIL you Open Bleeder Valve and leave open until no more Fluid or Air is Coming Out, Then Close it do it again and again,Then Go to the next Wheels as i told you above and repeat the same thing on each wheel but do it in the order i told you above. 2nd Everytime you open the Bleeder Valves and Fluids coming out ,Your Helper needs to Keep checking the MASTER Cylinder and Keep it Full ALL the TIME. or you'll get AIR in the System and the Bleeding will not Work, Without a Full master as you Bleed the Brakes. Continue doing this until you See Cleaner Brake Fluid Coming out ALL 4 Wheels Bleeder Valve. Remember KEPT THE MASTER CYLINDER FULL. AND ONLY have your HELP PUSH the PEDAL down even to the FLOOR DON"T PUMP IT> You'll get a Pedal as soon as you have Continued to Keep Bleeding the System. This should Solve your Problem.

My bleeder valve is stripped and the assembly is so rusted its almost impossible to remove the drum to change the cylinder


You can try some type of rust breaker and a vise grip to remove the bleeder. If the drums are worn, there will be a lip on the inner inside which will make it difficult to remove. You can try backing out the star key or you might have to crack the drum to take it off. You will need a new bleeder valve and a drum. Also make sure your emergency brake is not on. Good luck!

Need to know how to bleed air out of 2006 ford fusion i read there is bleeder valve but dont see one


Hi,

There are four bleeder valves on your vehicle. That is one for each wheel and you'll find them where the flexible hose joins the metal brackets holding the brake assembly together. They look like this:

I reduced the size and slipped it through.




The final step in any proper brake repair is to bleed your brake lines. Bleeding removes any air in the lines, which can result in poor braking performance. The primary symptom of air in the brake lines is that your brake pedal feels spongy or soft. This is because air, a gas, can compress while brake fluid, a liquid, is incompressible.

There are other times you might need to do this. Anytime your brake fluid gets excessively hot can introduce air into the system. You should also use the same technique to completely replace you brake fluid every couple of years. Brake fluid can absorb moisture from the air that, under extreme braking conditions, can boil, creating steam bubbles, which will give you the same symptoms as having air in the line.

Tools and materials required;

  • Wrench for bleeder valves
  • Short length of clear plastic tubing to fit bleeder valves
  • Turkey baster (I know, it sounds weird, but it comes in handy)
  • Container for old brake fluid (an old soda bottle with cap is ideal)
  • Brake fluid
  • Jack (maybe)
  • Jack stands (maybe)
  • Lug wrench (maybe)
  • Vacuum bleeder (optional)

The traditional way of bleeding brakes is to use a helper. Anyone who can clearly follow, and repeat back, instructions can provide this assistance. And, they won't get dirty so there's no need for them to even get into their work clothes.

If you have access to a vacuum bleeder you can do this job by yourself. Many auto parts stores will loan this tool with a small deposit.

Whichever technique you're going to use many steps remain the same.

First, locate the bleeder valves on the brakes. These look like small bolts with a nipple for attaching a piece of plastic tubing. They will be on the brake calipers near where the brake hose enters on disk brakes or on the backing plate in a similar location on drum brakes.

Once you have located the bleeder valves you can determine whether the vehicle must be lifted and the wheels removed to get to them. If you can easily reach the bleeder valves by turning wheels and or reaching under the vehicle adequately to put a wrench on them you may not need to lift the vehicle or remove the wheels.

To begin bleeding the brakes start with the wheel that is furthest from the master cylinder. Usually that is the passenger rear wheel for almost any vehicle, on American cars that would be the right rear. Bleed the brakes in the order of the distance from the brake master cylinder. If your master cylinder is located, as is usually the case, in front of the driver, you would go from passenger rear, driver rear, passenger front and finally driver front.

If you have decided that you need to lift the vehicle and remove the wheel, now is the time to lift the rear of the vehicle. Always use proper jack stands to support any lifted vehicle and never get underneath a vehicle that is only supported by the jack. When the wheels are lifted and the vehicle is safely on jack stands remove the rear wheels.

Open the hood of the vehicle and the brake fluid reservoir. Using the turkey baster, or similar device for sucking the old fluid out of the reservoir, remove as much of the old brake fluid as possible. Refill the reservoir with new fluid and leave the hood and reservoir open.

If you are bleeding your brakes without a vacuum bleeder you need to get your helper into the drivers seat. The vehicle won't be started so this person doesn't even have to be a licensed driver. In fact, this is a good first job for a young teen to get started working on vehicles.

Place a length of plastic tubing onto the bleeder valve on the first wheel you will be working on. Tell your helper "Down" to have them press the brake pedal and have them repeat that back when they've done that. With the brake pedal held down you will now slowly open the bleeder valve with your wrench. Fluid will start to flow out the tube. When the fluid flow has slowed or stopped, close the bleeder valve. Tell your helper "Up" and have them release the brake pedal and repeat back when the pedal is up.

Repeat the "Down" and "Up" sequence until clear fluid with no bubbles comes out of the valve. Every half dozen times, or so, check the level of fluid in the reservoir and bring it back up to full. If the fluid in the reservior gets too low air will get into the system requiring a restart from the beginning.

If you're using a vacuum bleeder you will attach it to the bleeder valve again using plastic tubing. Open the bleeder valve with your wrench and, following the instructions with the bleeder, pump the fluid from the valve. Every so often close the valve and top off the fluid in the reservoir. It will take a fairly short time to drain the reservoir so check it often. Continue pumping fluid from the line until clear fluid enters the tubing.

After you have clear fluid coming out of the valve on the first wheel go to the next wheel and repeat. When the back is done, replace the wheels, and lower the rear of the vehicle. Lift the front and bleed those in the same manner as the rear.

That's all there is to bleeding your brakes. The first time might take as long as a couple of hours but, after you've done the job a couple of times, you can likely complete the whole thing within a half hour or so.

All the best,

Ben

How to bleed brakes on a 1992 Chevy Caprice. Specifically the rear drums


start from the fartherest place from brake master cylinder, that will be the rear passenger side wheel. it takes two people to bleed brakes. you will find the bleeder valve screws at the top of inside of the rear drums on both rear wheels, have someone pump the brakes up, will take at least 4 pumps of brake pedal, at 4th pump keep pressure on pedal while you break loose the bleeder valve on the rear wheel, fluid will come out and brake pedal will go down to floor, keep pressure on brake pedal until you've tightened the bleeder screw back [note] you'll only have to back the bleeder valve out about a half turn until you see the fluid come out. after you've done the rear brakes add brake fluid to the master cylinder as it will be low. then go to the front passeger side and you will find the bleeder screw on the brake caliper. repeat the same proceedure as back. remember that pressure on the pedal is a must until you've tightened those bleeder valve screws back or else it will **** air into the brake system. suggest that you bleed all 4 wheels not just the back. after you've bled the front make sure you add more brake fluid back to the master cylinder, it will be low again. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

No fluid to the front calipers


Hi Friend:

#1) Check to see if the Master Cylinder Rubber on the Cap is Not Calapesed.And fits Even in the Metel Cap.

#2) Fill master up to MAX Level, Bleed Brakes Start with the Passenger Rear,Then Drivers Rear,During the Bleeding Make Sure to Keep Master Cylinder Full off & On.Bleed each Cyling until you get good Clean Fluid from the Blleeder Valves. USE DOT-3 Fluid.And Make Sure theres no Air Left in The System on Each Cylinder

#3) After the Rears are done Next Go to Passengers Front Caliper ,Bleed The Same Way here.Of course you'll need 1-Person Pumping Pedal during Whole Process.

#4) If you Are Still NOT getting Fluid out Of your Bleeder Valves in Front.

#5) Making Sure your Masters Cylinder is Full.You'll see bleeder Valves On MASTER CYLINDER. Loosen bleeder valve while someone is Pushing Pedal to the Floor.The Tighten before The Pedal is Let off.Keep it to The Floor Each time you Open Bleeder Valve.

#6) Do both Sides.If you still are Not getting Fluid from the Front Brake Bleeder Valves. Then Your MASTER CYLINDER is BAD Or your FRONT Brake Pads are Worn Down so Far your Caliper Piston is Bottomed Out.

#7) If this is the case Replace Pads 1st ,If not Fluid Still .

#8) Replace the Master Cylinder.

#9) After Replacing Pads or and Both,Flush out your Fluid from the Complete System until you get Clean Fluid from All your Blleeder Valves. With No Air In The System As Well.

When bleeding my brakes do I have to take all the fluid out of the master cylinder and refill it before moving on to the bleeders or can I go straight to the bleeders and wok from there? Will I be able to...


The purpose of bleeding brakes is to remove air pockets from the brake lines. You do not need to do anything with the master cylinder. You need an assistant to help you bleed the brakes. Have the assistant pump the brakes a couple times and then hold the pedal down. You open the bleeder and the air and fluid will come out, then close the bleeder. You r assistant can then release the pedal and start again by pumping the pedal and then hold it. You open the bleeder again. You repeat this process until only fluid comes out of the bleeder. Do it for each tire.

I am trying to loosen a caliper bleeder valve.


Try hitting the area around the bleeder with a hammer .. it may help .. bleeders are tough if they don't go after being heated/lubed. You could try loosening the line into the caliper .. that may allow enough of a bleed, banking on the fact that there is still brake fluid in that caliper .. otherwise you may end up replacing that caliper.
