Question about Car Audio & Video
Most likely you have air in your brake lines. You must bleed the air out of them. Hook small clear tube to brake bleeding nipple, the other end of the tube into a clear container filled with enough brake fluid to cover end of tube. Fill brake fluid reservior. Loosen lock nut and cinch hand tight. Start car, press brake pedal. While someone holds brake pedal depressed, open lock nut. If you are doing it right, you will see brake fluid in the tube. Tighten lock nut. Have person release pedal then press pedal again. Loosen nut and watch for bubbles. Continue pressing pedal and loosening/tightening nut until there are no more bubbles seen in the tube. Also check brake fluid reservior to make sure it is full. As more air is bled out of the brake system, your reservior level will go down. Do rear brakes first then move to front. If it continues to happen, you have a leak in your brake system.
