HI FIRST OFF CLAMP THE BRAKE HOSE CLOSE TO THE MASTER CILINDER AS YOU CAN IF YOU HAVE RUBBER BRAKE LINES, YOU CANT DO THIS IF YOU HAVE BRAIDED OR SIM HOSES.
WITH THE CLAMP ON YOU SHOULD HAVE A GOOD SOLID PEDAL, IF THIS IS THE CASE,, UNDO THE BLEED NIPPLE ON THE REAR CALIPER, USE A PIPE TO CATCH THE FLUID, WHILE PUSHING DOWN ON THE PEDAL, GENTLY RELEASE THE PRESURE OF THE CLAMP, NOT ALL THE WAY THIS WILL ALOW YOU TO FORCE THE FLUID PAST THE CLAMP, BEFORE YOU ALOW THE PEDAL TO RETURN RE APPLY THE PRESURE ON THE CLAMP, REPEAT THIS SEVERAL TIMES TILL THE FLUID STARTS CUMING OUT OF THE NIPPLE, THEN TIGHTEN THE NIPPLE REMOVE THE CLAMP AND PROCEED TO BLEED IN THE NORMAL WAY TO REMOVE ANY FURTHER AIR WHICH MAY BE IN THE SYSTEM,

Renault megan. Intermittent loss of brakes, then pedal goes hard


Make sure the emergency brakes are back off and adjusted after pad replacement. A lot of mechanics forget or don't know about this. Also check the master cylinder. Push on brake pedal hard and see if it sinks to the floor, if it does then the master cylinder is bad. If there is air in the brake system it is best to pressure bleed or vacuum bleed the brakes to get the air out. Often when using the two person pump the pedal and hold will not be effective in getting all the air out if a line is broken and then replaced.

'92 Jimmy rear brake failure


This will be a problem with either a collapsed brake line or the proportional valve. A collapsed line will not allow the proper flow and pressure to the brake assembly, and a faulty proportional valve will allow the pressure to bleed back into the system. You can test for these with a pressure tester. If the pressure is low but constant while the brake pedal is held down, it's a collapsed line. If the pressure drops off slowly while the brake pedal is held down, then it's the proportional valve.

Replaced frond brake pads, brakes now go all way to floor, tried to bleed but cannt get brake pedal at all. Some fluid coming out of bleeders during bleeding.


you shouldnt have to bleed anything when just doing brakes,unless you opened the bleeders and this did not have to be done, if this is what was done then bleeding is needed,close all bleeders, have someone in car, pump pedal 3 times and hold down open bleeder tell them to keep preasure on pedal as it goes down then close bleeder and then tell them to pump again and hold do this a few times on each side starting at the right rear wheel then to left rear then right front then left front always keep an eye on fluid level in master cylinder always keep it full, dont let it empty, bleed all wheels,

How do I bleed the front brakes on a 2004 audi a4 quattro?


For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also. But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!! For front brake pads. First you must verify yours front brake disc diameter: 280 mm or 288 mm. (On my car y have 288 mm). After that you can buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow: 1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose! 2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper. 3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease). 4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier. 5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston. 6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary! 7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing. 8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward). 9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier. 10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm. 11. Install both caps. 12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!

04 Focus SVT- All brakes will bleed out except the right rear..??


Have somone help you as you bleed the brakes. Have them pump the pedal 3 times and hold the pedal down with constant pressure while you crack the bleed valve open to the problem caliper. Don't let them release the pedal until you have closed the bleeder valve. Continue this process until you have fluid coming out without air. Periodacillay check the master cylinder to be sure it remains full enough so as not to allow more air in because the resivouir ran to low during the bleeding process. If when you are done and the brake light continues to be on then you will need to bleed the proportioning valve until the system balances out on line pressure.
If this works can you please give me a rating??? Thank you.

Replacing brakes


hiya bonnie if you intend to DIY the brakes ? front pads? or rear shoes ? the front pads are easy enough for you to change in fact the pads/and calipers are virtually the same as ford and peugeot they are sliding type calipers that are held in position by 2x bolts that screw into the pins from rear of caliper when bolts removed the caliper pulls off reassembly is reverse after you push piston back the pads fit into the caliper carrier then refit/secure the caliper and pump brake pedal to take up the pads to discs B4 you move car then!bleed each brake a couple of pumps till fluid is clean the fluid that comes out first will be dirty due to heat absorbsion resulting in spongy pedal you will find pedal is more positive/hard when you bleedbrakes as i suggested brake fluid does absorb heat and moisture over time that is why it is recommended you bleed fluid to clear old fluid in lines nearest the cylinders hope this helps ? if you req further help come back will be glad to help best wishes from rochdale

Brake pad replacement


You will need to bleed all four corners, starting at the right rear, then left rear, then right front, then left front. Your bleed procedure always goes from the wheel farthest from the master cylinder, to the closest. By bleeding only the rear brakes, you've gotten air out back there, but not necessarily any air that might have moved farther forward. Bleed your rears again, and then move forward to bleed the fronts, and see if that helps.
