Usually on bikes rear is single brake so only one place- with resivouir full of fluid and lid off you loosen the nipple on the caliper and gently push brake lever down tighten nipple back up then let brake lever return up always checking the level of fluid left as if it runs out of fluid and sucks air you have a big job ahead of you repeating this process until all air removed!
Lots of people have one way valves to attach to the caliper nipple (saves tightening and loosening every time) I have seen people attach a line to the nipple and have it submerged in break fluid (this just a cheap version of one way valve)
But on the rear the is very little fluid to pass and short break hose and it is all there within reach to work with so I just loosen and tighten with each pump of the break pedal and top up with fluid each pump - good idea to attached some line to the caliper nipple to track the excess fluid away into some rag or a container as gets a bit messy other wise

How do you bleed the rear brakes on a Bentley continental GT

you have to do a full vehicle brake bleed you cannot just do the rear and its the split diagonal bleed. there are bleeder screws on each brake caliper in this order. front driver, rear passanger, front passanger, and then rear driver. i recommend that you do a pressure bleed but you will have to go to a dealer or a known place where they have the proper eqiuptment. Hope this helps.

How to bleed rear break on dyna glide bike

Bleeding the brake is not difficult but it must be done in a certain way. Follow these directions exactly. First remove the top from the rear brake master cylinder and check the fluid level. If you add fluid during this process, make sure you are putting the right kind of fluid in the reservoir. It should be printed right on the top cover of the reservoir. Place the top back on the reservoir but you don't have to put the screws in it. All we are going to do with it at this point is keep brake fluid from splashing on your bike. To bleed the brakes, depress and hold the rear brake pedal. Open the bleed valve on the rear brake about a half turn and allow the brake fluid and air to bleed out. Close the brake bleeder valve. Release the brake pedal and check the fluid level in the reservoir. Do not allow the reservoir to run dry. Continue to bleed the brakes until you have a full firm brake pedal. Then top off the reservoir and replace the cap and screws. You can put a piece of small diameter clear hose on the end of the bleeder valves to direct the brake fluid into a catch jar and it makes this job much neater. Do not allow the brake fluid to get on painted surfaces as it can damage the paint.

Good Luck

I re placed the master cylender and now i got no brakes in the back at all

You will need to bleed the system. If you did not bleed the master when you installed it, if it has bleed valves, use them to get the air out...if not, step down lightly on the brake and at the same time, loosen the line fitting a bit till fluid comes out. Then, bleed rear brakes the same way using bleed screws on the cylinders or calipers. Begin at right rear, then left rear, then r/f and l/f. Don't permit the master to run dry or you will have to begin all over again. Also check all lines to make sure nothing under the vehicle is leaking. While bleeding don't take your foot off the brake till the bleeder you are working on is closed, and don't push really hard on brake as that can damage the cylinder internals.

Bleeding brake system how?


Make sure one end of the Jeep is raised (starting with the rear end) and secure on jack stands and the wheels on each side have been removed. If you have been working on the brakes, this should already be done.

Connect a clear rubber tube to the bleeder valve on the right rear brake caliper. Start with this end and side because it is farthest from the master cylinder.Place the tube's other end into a container partially filled with brake fluid.

Open the bleeder valve on the caliper and have an assistant press on the brake pedal inside the Jeep. Look for a mixture of air and fluid to come out of the valve. Once all the air is purged and the fluid runs cleanly from the valve, close the screw and remove the tube.

Repeat the process for all four brakes. Move to the left rear next, followed by the right front and the left front. If you need to, reconnect the Jeep's rear wheels and lower the rear end before raising the front end and removing those wheels.

Check the level of fluid in the master cylinder periodically as you bleed the brakes. If the level drops below the needed fill line, add more fluid. Use fresh fluid, not any that you have bled from the brakes.

Start the Jeep's engine after bleeding all the brakes and press on the brake pedal. You might need to do this repeatedly to seat new brake pads you just installed. Turn off the engine and hold down on the pedal. Bleed the brakes again if the pedal sink within 15 to 20 seconds.

Driver side brake not bleeding properly after bleeding left side and changing rotors, calipers, and pads?

first of all make sure master cylinder is full of brake fluid.then you crank car leave foot off brake pedal. watch abs light on dash it should turn off in 10 seconds if not have car towed to garage or dealer. they have to use a scanner to scan the abs brakes if abs light turn off in 3 seconds. then starting bleeding from master bleed the lower brake line fitting at the proportional valve followed by the upper brake line fitting. keep eye on brake fluid in mastercylinder dont let run prime the abs hydralic modulator.connect the bleeder hose to the rear bleeder valve on the the other end into a container partially filled with cleab brake fluid.make sure the end of the hose is the bleeder valve slowly about 1/2 to 3/4 turn have an assistant depress the brake pedal and hold it in the depressed position. when the flow of fluid ceases close the bleeder valve.repeat process until no air bubbles are present in the fluid.then tighten the bleed valve securely. start bleeding brakes. your bleeding sequence is right rear - left front - left rear - right front.WARNING IF ALL FAILS YOUR BRAKES DONT FEEL SOLID AND FEEL VERY SPONGY.DONT DRIVE CAR. HAVE IT TOWED TO DEALERSHIP.THEY WILL HAVE TO PRESSURE BLEED YOUR BRAKE SYSTEM.

How to bleed the brakes for 2001 ford taurus

Please don't forget to rate:

Bleeding The Brake System Bleeding When any part of the hydraulic system has been disconnected for repair or replacement, air enters the lines causing spongy pedal action (because air can be compressed and brake fluid cannot). To correct this condition, it is necessary to bleed the hydraulic system to ensure all air is purged.
Always begin bleeding the brake system from the furthest wheel cylinder or caliper from the master cylinder; the right rear.
NOTE: The right side of the vehicle is the passenger side. The sides of the vehicle are determined from the driver's perspective. This reference is taken from sitting in the driver's seat, facing forward.
Maintain a full reservoir during the bleeding operation. Never use brake fluid that has been drained from the hydraulic system, or from an open container, no matter how clean it is. Always use brake fluid from a new, sealed container. The front and rear reservoir will drain as the front or rear brakes are bled.
  1. Park the vehicle on a level surface. Place the vehicle in PARK (automatic) or REVERSE (manual) with the engine OFF, and apply the parking brake. Chock the rear wheels to prevent vehicle movement. NOTE: Wheel chocks may be purchased at your local auto parts store, or a block of wood cut into wedges may be used.
  2. Loosen the lugnuts from all four wheels, but do not remove the lugnuts until the vehicle is raised and supported properly.
  3. Use an approved jack and raise the vehicle high enough to place jack stands under all four corners of the vehicle. Place the jack stands under the frame or axles of the vehicle. Ensure that the front of the vehicle is raised higher than the rear.
  4. Remove the wheels from the vehicle.
  5. Clean all dirt from around the master cylinder fill cap. Remove the cap and fill the master cylinder with brake fluid until the level is within 1/4 in. (6mm) of the top edge of the reservoir.
  6. Clean the bleeder screws at all four wheels. The bleeder screws are located on the back of the brake backing plate (drum brakes) and at the top of the brake calipers (disc brakes).
  7. Attach a length of rubber hose over the bleeder screw and place the other end of the hose in a plastic jar.
  8. Have an assistant place and hold pressure on the brake pedal.
  9. Open the bleeder screw 1/2 - 3/4 turn. As the bleeder is opened, the brake pedal will travel to the floor. Have the assistant inform you when the pedal has bottomed out. NOTE: Do not remove pressure from the brake pedal once it is bottomed out. No movement to the pedal should occur until the bleeder is closed and the assistant is made aware of the situation. Failure to do this will draw more air into the system.
  10. Close the bleeder screw and tell your assistant remove their foot from the brake pedal. Continue this process to purge all air from the system.
  11. When bubbles cease to appear at the end of the bleeder hose, tighten the bleeder screw and remove the hose.
  12. After bleeding each wheel, check the master cylinder fluid level and add fluid accordingly.
  13. Repeat the bleeding operation at the remaining three wheels, ending with the one closet to the master cylinder. The pattern is, RR, LR, RF, LF.
  14. Fill the master cylinder reservoir to the proper level and install the reservoir cap.
