    Hi, Not advisable! Air does not compress like brake fluid so the result would be a spongy feeling to the brakes. The bigger hazard is that a hard brake may lock one wheel and not the other. ABS excluded. When trying to stop a 2000lb + machine do you want to take a chance? Fixing your brakes right is a safety priority, do it right.

It's best you do all wheels at the same time. start from the farthest wheel from the master cyclinder. after you have bled each wheel cylinder/caliper ... fill the master cylinder again to ensure enough fluid is in it. if you do just the front you are likely to **** air back into the front from the rear brakes (if any air is present).

Do you have to bleed master cylinder on 106 if master cylinder resorvior is empty


You don't have to bleed the master cylinder, you are going to have to prime it and bleed your entire brake system again. When you are bleeding your breaks you never let the reservoir run dry or the master cylinder starts to push air through the entire system. Not just on the line running to your front caliper. This is probably the reason you aren't getting pressure even when you pump the breaks.

Our kia amanti's breaks build up and stop the car, then when we use a wrench and blead the line under the hood the breaks start working normally again.


do you mean that you pump the brakes to build up pressure in order to stop?

bleeding brakes requires you to bleed them from each wheel starting at the right rear. procede as follows: have someone sit in the drivers seat. have them pump the brakes slowly and forceably to build up pressure. maintain force on the pedal. starting at the right rear, open the bleed screw slowly. the pedal will go to the floor and the fluid will drain. hold the pedal to the floor and tighten the bleed screw. repeat this procedure several times until you are sure there is no air in the line. follow these steps at each wheel- left rear, right front, left front. keep reservoir filled with fluid. fill after each wheel. (note) get a length of rubber hose that fits snuggly over the end of the bleed screw
and drain fluid into a container.

i think you were draining the anti-lock brake system. in which, case follow the steps above for that also.

Break pressure


Make sure you are trying to bleed the system in this order (Right rear, Left rear, Right front, Left front). If you are doing this and still not getting pressure, you should check the brake lines going to the rear for leaks. If you find a leak, replace that segment of line, bleed the system again and problem should be solved.

Problem with bleeding my breaks


You need a special tool that plugs into the ABS hydraulic control unit and holds the POP-IT valves open to bleed the air out, unless you have that tool you will keep spinning your wheels, most brake shops have a tool to do this or the dealer of course will have it.

Cant get any breaks after changing break lines


You need to bleed them...bleed master cyl first,(if it has bleed screws use them if not use line fittings) then rr, lr, rf, then lf. Maker sure that all fittings are not leaking and that while bleeding, master does not run dry. Use light pressure on master, don't "mash" it down. You may need to bleed twice to get all air out.
good luck. (any problems, post back!)
