The pedal should have it's own return spring right where the pedal pivots on the frame. Check the master cylinder to make sure that it's returning. There is a spring in it but it's not nearly strong enough to push the rear brake pedal back up. Check for a binding in the pedal by taking the long reach rod that runs from the pedal to the master cylinder loose.

I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride...


A loose pad could do it.
Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones.

I changed the front brake pads and now have no pressure when i press the brake peddal. the master cylinder is full but still no pressure. what did i do wrong?


You may not have done anything wrong. You won't have any pressure the first couple of times that you press the brake pedal. Try pumping the brakes a few times. When you change the pads you have to open the caliper all the way up to get the caliper back on. When you press the brake the pads won't go all the way to the caliper on the first couple of times you press the brake. But once you pump the pedal, it should build up pressure. If not you will have to bleed the brakes.

Toyota tercel 1996;


take tire off and remove caliper take the pads out then take a large c clamp with a flat piece of steel shape closely to one of the pads do not use your pads for this unless u kept one of the old ones which will work great place the piece of metal across the round center then place the clamp head behind the caliper so its directly in line with the metal plate centered over the round cylinder and then clamp down slowly by turning clamp handle make sure you stay centered when it flattens out set it aside and be very carefull of brake lines next see if wheel cylinder turns also shake it to check for looseness remember if its front wheel drlve the transmission will have that wheel for its main power and it would seem a little bit harder to turn put the car in nuetral to check spin it should drag some on the training because of all the gears but if its crunching when turning you will need to check the barings if thats not it then theres a problem with training ok after checking those things its time to put it back together remove clamp put pads back on slide it back on and bolt it back on thenput tire back on be sure to pump the brake peddal several times to build fluid back to cylender on brake then check underhood to make sure fluid is at proper hight make sure cap is on brake master cylender then test your brakes if this doesnt help try bleeding the brakes starting with rear passenger side then reardrivers side then front passenger side then drivers side in that order i replaced all my brakes myself and they are working great

Ive put a new rear rotor on my 03 kx250 and i


Yes, you need to bleed the system. Somehow air has gotten in.
First, fill the master cylinder to the full level with brake fluid. Locate the bleeder valve down on the caliper and get out a wrench that fits it. Then pump the pedal several times and hold it down as you open the bleeder valve. Do not let the pedal back up while the valve is open - or else air will be drawn back in. After a few seconds, close the valve and pump the pedal again.
Perform these steps until normal feel to the pedal is achieved. Make sure the master cylinder does not run low on brake fluid while you are doing the bleeding.

How to bleed brake lines for a 1990 oldsmobile cutlass ciera


Two people, one to pump the peddal and one to open and close the bleeder valve....

Person 1 pumps the peddal 5-6 times, then holds the peddal, while person 2 opens the valve till the peddal hits the floor, then person 2 closes the valve.

you start on the Passenger rear and do this till you get no air and only fluid, then repete process on Drivers rear, then Passenger front, the Drivers front...

Make sure valve is closed when pumping or realsing the peddal, as this will allow air into the system.

Check fluid level after each wheel to ensure you don't run empty during operation.

How do i bleed the brakes on my 1998 gmc jimmy


it takes two people to do, one to pump and hold the brake peddal and one to open the bleeders....

One person pumps the peddal 5-6 times and holds, while the other starts at the Passenger rear tirer and opens the bleeder valve till the brake peddal hits the floor, and close it, do this till no air comes out but only fluid, then go to Drivers Rear, then Passenger Front, then Drivers Front.....

DON'T open the vlave while they are pumping, or allow them to let up on the peddal till you have the vlave closed again, as that will put air back into the system.

02 harley fxdwg brake light stays on


Make sure your rear brake pedal has freeplay in it. when you slowly push the lever down by hand you should be able to feel some freeplay. if not the the reason it keeps staying on is because the vibration of the motor is actually pumping up your brake ( light too ) and not releasing it until it bleeds off the pressure.
