Bleeding the brakes can take a while as the amount actually squirted throught the pump is tiny. the best thing I have found is to go to halfords and buy a bleeding kit which has a one way valve ( not the orange pipe and plug). You then slaken the bleed valve slightly ,attach the hose to the nipple and put the other end in a container to save the fluid that you will be pumping out. Then open your brake fluid reservior on your handal bars and get pumping with the lever, making sure the reservior never runs out of fluid by keeping it topped up. When there is just pure fluid coming out of the bleed valve(no air bubbles in the fluid) tighten the bleed nipple. job done. It really does trake a long time especially if you have an air lock, builds your arm muscles up.
another way is to pull the lever fully in and tie it off on the bars and leave it for 24 hrs, also heating the claiper with a hair dryer causes the air to rise up the pipe and back into the reservoir.

SOURCE: bleeding breaks

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).

My rear back breaks won't bleed.We have replaced master cylinder,break cylinder,front&back breaks,resivor.We have the front breaks that bleed every time.My pedal goes to the floor.Any ideas?


Jennifer, some brake systems have special procedures to bleed brake systems, some systems have to be plugged into a special scan tool which will cycle different solenoids to allow proper bleeding. You may have to get a good technician with proper equipment to bleed the brakes.

What's the break bleeding sequence for a 2006 scion xb? I was told left front, rear right, right front, left rear, like a cross pattern. Is this true?


I believe the bleeding pattern for any vehicle is furthest from the master cylinder first and so on the xb it would be rear pass 1st, rear driver 2nd, front pass. 3rd, and front driver last.

Bleeding breakes on 2004 ponyac grand am


You can try to bleed just front but I recommend bleeding all 4. by starting at R/Rear (farthest from Master cyl.) then L/Rear then R/Front then L/Front. Have someone pump them up with out car running and hold foot on pedal till you crack bleeder loose then tighten before they let up on pedal, check reservoir in m.c. each time so you don't run out of brake fluid .

Where do I bleed the brtakes on A 1992 WRANGLER


If it's a 5 speed, under the passenger side in front of the base plate, there is a small nipple looks like the one for bleeding breaks, it pokes out of the front bell of the transmission. Bleed it like breaks, have someone push on the clutch, and hold, you open and let out the air, close have them let up, repeat until air is out.

biggest problem with bleeding breakes is after each wheel you have to check your fluid, start with back break either side have some one pump it 3 times hold to the floor , you break the seal let bleed off, you tighten the nut have them do it again and again the same way , until there is no air, making sure you check your fluid every couple times, then move on to the next one, and do the same thing

Break bleeding


try bleeding the brakes as a system. start by making sure the master cylinder is full. then have a Friend step on the brakes and release 3-5 times. the last one they should hold as you break lose the bleeder on the passenger side rear, then do the driver side rear ,(check fluid) next passenger front and then the driver side front do each wheel until you don't see any or hear any air, thats the way i have always bleed brake systems. hope this helps
