Manual

WARNING: Brake fluid contains polyglycol ethers and polyglycols. Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. If brake fluid contacts eyes, flush eyes with running water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists. If taken internally, drink water and induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately.

CAUTION: Do not allow the brake master cylinder reservoir to run dry during the bleeding operation. Keep the brake master cylinder reservoir filled with the specified brake fluid. Never reuse the brake fluid that has been drained from the hydraulic system.

CAUTION: Brake fluid is harmful to painted and plastic surface's. If brake fluid is spilled onto a painted or plastic surface, immediately wash it with water.

NOTE: When any part of the hydraulic system has been disconnected for repair or installation of new components, air can get into the system and cause spongy brake pedal action. This requires bleeding of the hydraulic system after it has been correctly connected. The hydraulic system can be bled manually or with pressure bleeding equipment.

  1. Clean all dirt from and remove the brake master cylinder filler cap and fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with the specified brake fluid.

  2. Place a box end wrench on the RH rear bleeder screw. Attach a rubber drain tube to the RH rear bleeder screw and submerge the free end of the tube in a container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
  3. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal and then hold firm pressure on the brake pedal.
  4. Loosen the RH rear bleeder screw until a stream of brake fluid comes out. While the assistant maintains pressure on the brake pedal, tighten the RH rear bleeder screw.
    • Repeat until clear, bubble-free fluid comes out.
    • Refill the brake master cylinder reservoir as necessary.
  1. Tighten the RH rear bleeder screw.
  2. Repeat Steps 2, 3, 4 and 5 for the LH rear bleeder screw.
  3. Place a box end wrench on the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw. Attach a rubber drain tube to the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw, and submerge the free end of the tube in a container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
  4. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal and then hold firm pressure on the brake pedal.
  5. Loosen the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw until a stream of brake fluid comes out.
    • While the assistant maintains pressure on the brake pedal, tighten the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.
    • Repeat until clear, bubble-free fluid comes out.
    • Refill the brake master cylinder reservoir as necessary.
  1. Tighten the RH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.
  2. Repeat Steps 7, 8, 9 and 10 for the LH front disc brake caliper bleeder screw.

go ahead and change the filter. There is no need to bleed it after changing the filter. Just start up the vehicle and let it run for a minute or two.

SOURCE: bleeding the slave cylinder

Hi

Best to get the help of a friend to pump the clutch pedal for you.

Take care with the brake fluid, as it removes paintwork !

Top up your clutch fluid reservoir, connect a bleeding tube to the nipple on your slave cylinder, and put the other end of tube in a container.

Get your friend to pump pedal 3 times, and then hold to the floor.

Open the nipple for 5 seconds or so, then close.

Repeat this about 6 to 8 times topping up the fluid as you go.

You should then find, that the air is out of your system, and your pedal is back to normal !

Good luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice.... Thank you ! John.

You need to make sure you have an assistant. The assistant keep adding fluid and pumping the brakes while you operate the bleeder screws.

The procedure--LF,RF,LR,RR (left front, right front,etc). You are moving from the shortest brake line closest to the master cylinder to the longest brake line furthest from the master cylinder. Use an aquarium air hose (12 inch length), and a clear jar to catch the brake fluid. When no more bubbles escape through the hose, the caliper or cylinder is properly bled.

If the level drops below the LOW mark, air may reenter the system. Keep the reservoir full by checking after each bleed!

SOURCE: brake bleeding procedure on 2000 vw golf

get a one man bleeder kit from halfords (about £7) and then you can go around the car and bleed the brakes without a assistant, you just attach the tool to the nipple on the caliper, loosen the nut, press the brake pedel a few times till there is no more bubbles in the hose and then move on to the next corner, there is a specific way to go around the car but if you start at the back and finish at the front it should be ok

Boat manual


it normal would be on top of the motor were all your electrical comes into the motor .you would see 50 amp fuses next to them there should be 4 round black contactors that have all your wires from your tilt motor and your trim motor connected to them. but if it still works its not the contactors .try this have some one pull up on the outdrive while you hit the switch . if it goes up its your tilt motor has water in it or was damaged by hitting something . water damage is fixable only if its fresh water .salt water you need not waist your time . buy a new one .and if it is fresh water ,if you no how to take stuff apart and putt it back togeather again...the tilt motor need to be cleaned ,up and new seal kit put in it .it should work fine again .

What is the brake bleeding order for a 2006 mercury mariner v6 premier?


Start at the caliper furthest from the master cyclender, should be right rear then move to left rear followed by right front and lastly left front! I have done many different cars over the years and this procedure allway works perfectly:)

I replaced master cyclender and i cant get any break pedal i got fluid out of front of of master cyclender but not from back


With the cover off the master cyclinder, push down very very slowly on the pedal and lease. Do this several times to try an get the air that is trapped inside, out of the master. Then replace the cap(s) and bleed the rear brakes only, since these are the ones giving you problems. Recheck the pedal firmness after bleed. It is always a good idea to bench bleed a master before install, but you should be ok with this try.

My tilt/trim on 1989 force 85hp outboard does not move. pump runs, but nothing moves. cant find anyone to fix


It sounds like you need to bleed your trim lines. It is a pretty easy task and if that doesnt work you might need to rebuild your trim cylinder. I would bet on bleeding the system first.
