How to bleed the clutch on a 2002 hyundai accent

its the same process as bleeding brakes- except you pump the clutch pedal and loosen the clutch slave cylinder located by the front motor mount instead of a brake slave cylinder.

what i do is just loosen the slave cylinder bleeder screw and let it all run dry. then disconnect the reservoir from the master cylinder and clean it out with brake cleaner because all that black junk rests in the bottom of that. theres still more in the line, so reattach the reservoir and fill it up. let it bleed all the way back down the line and proceed to pump and bleed the system. if you know how to bleed brakes it should be a piece of cake.

Just today had brake booster replaced. Arriving home after dark, brake lights would not turn off! Tried removing fuses-etc. - nothing works. Help! Battery will drain overnight. Thank you!

Your brake light switch is stuck. It's mounted just under dash above your brake pedal. Sounds like it wasn't adjusted properly. You can disconnect your battery for the night and reattach in AM to get back to repair shop for proper fix. Remember when reattaching cables, NEGATIVE CABLE GOES ON LAST

How do i fix the brakeline on my 1994 honda accord with a v4 engine?

The brake line will run from the back of the wheel backing plate to a connection point further toward the front or center of the car (where it connects, along with the other brake line) to a fitting. The line can be removed and replaced. Patching it would be a waste of time because a brake line, when the brake pedal is pressed, undergoes a great deal of hydraulic pressure. The lines are specially made to withstand that pressure. If you were to undertake the job yourself, you should take into account that it can be a pretty dirty job since brake fluid is going to be flowing from the fittings once you disconnect them (you should be prepared to plug them so you don’t lose all your fluid) and the fittings are often difficult to turn with a wrench The following is the procedure, but I would seriously consider finding a local garage for an estimate for the work.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Elevate and safely support that side of the car.
Remove the wheel so it is easier to access the backing plate.
Clean the joint where the brake line connects to the back of the plate.
Place a pan under the joint to be disconnected.
Using two wrenches (one to hold the joint and one to turn the fitting) disconnect the line to be replaced.
Disconnect the other end of the line, moving the drain pan as necessary.
Disconnect and retaining clips or brackets that may be holding the line and remove the line.
If you are going to have the system open for more time than it takes to swap lines, plug the line coming from the main cylinder (toward the front of the car).
Install the new line, assuring yourself that both ends are correctly threaded and turn smoothly using finger pressure as you start them (consider that some lines are flexible hoses with fittings on the ends and others are solid pipe that has to be gently bent into the proper configuration).
Using the two wrenches, tighten each fitting to 9-12 lbs, which you can estimate. Good and tight.
Reinstall the clips or brackets you may have removed.
Refill the brake reservoir with clean, fresh brake fluid.
BLEED THE BRAKE SYSTEM.(that means all four brakes at the wheel bleeders, which can be a job in itself)
Replace the wheel, reattach the neg. cable, etc.
I hope this helps you.

2004 Pontiac GA brakes going back once a month

Sounds like the master cylinder isn't releasing pressure after you remove your foot... Usually the calipers hang up, but you replaced them so...replace the master cylinder and bleed the brakes

No brakes after changing brake caliper & bleeding system

Sounds like you still have air in your brake lines. Make sure all your brake lines are tight. Then bleed again. Bleed the trouble side first, meaning right side, then go to front left, back left then back right, make sure that your brake fluid is also full

Replacing front calipers

It is usually easier to disconnect the flexible brake hoses where they join up to the solid ones first then you can remove them from the caliper end without getting them twisted.
