I have a 2004 Land cruiser and changed the right rear brake cyl and brake shoes . What is the proper procedure to bleed the rear brake system. Thank you for your help.

  1. Check the fluid level in the reservoir after bleeding each wheel. Add DOT3 fluid, if necessary.
  2. If the master cylinder was disassembled or if the reservoir becomes empty, bleed the air from the master cylinder as follows:
    1. Disconnect the brake lines from the master cylinder.
    2. Slowly depress the brake pedal and hold it.
    3. Block off the outlet plug with your finger, and release the brake pedal.
    4. Repeat 3 or 4 times.

  3. Bleed the brake starting with the one furthest from the reservoir and then the next furthest, etc.
  4. Depress the brake pedal several times, then loosen the bleeder plug with the pedal held down.
  5. At the point when fluid stops coming out, tighten the bleeder plug to 11 Nm (8 ft. lbs.), then release the brake pedal.
  6. Repeat until all the air in the fluid has been bled out.
  7. Repeat the procedure to bleed the air out of brake line for each wheel.
  8. Check the fluid level and add DOT3 fluid if necessary.

Rear brake fails ,when mashed ,there is NO brake...

Find your rear brake master cylinder. The find the metal line that comes out of the rear of the master cylinder. Follow this line all the way back to your rear brake caliper. Look for broken lines or leaks. Check your rear brake master cylinder reservoir to make sure you have brake fluid in it. Fill the reservoir with the recommended type of fluid. The proper type of fluid is printed on the top cover for the reservoir. Never mix the different types of brake fluid, they are not compatible. Once you fill the reservoir, you must bleed the brakes.

To bleed the brakes, you perform the following steps in this exact order. First, slowly depress and release the rear brake pedal a few times. Then, press the rear brake pedal and hold it. Open the bleeder valve on the caliper and allow all air or brake fluid to escape. Close the bleeder valve. Release the brake pedal and again depress and hold it down. Open the bleeder and allow the air and fluid to bleed out. Close the bleeder valves. Release the brake pedal. Check the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir. Do not allow the reservoir to run dry. If you still don't have a good brake pedal, continue to bleed the brakes until you get brake fluid with no air bubbles in it.

If after you have thoroughly bled the brakes you cannot get a pedal, you either have a mechanical problem with the brake pedal or the master cylinder needs rebuilding.

Good Luck

Wat is a brake switch

An electrical switch located on the upper side of the brake pedal arm. It has voltage going to it, and when you depress the brake pedal, the switch closes and let the voltage go to the brake lights. (These switches are adjustable)

Brake pedal goes to floor on first depression; then pumps up fine

Try this,apply the emergency before stepping on the brake.
If this helps the pedal,the rear brakes are out of adjustment.

2002 heritage no brake lights on hand or foot has led rear light change to old lightwith same result

Find the rear stop light switch. It's a pressure switch that is screwed into a "T" connector that the metal brake lines screw into. Just follow the rear brake line from the master cylinder to the rear caliper and you'll find it in the line somewhere. There will be two electrical connections on the switch. Make sure the wiring is in good condition at this point.

With the ignition switch in the "Run" position, one of these wires should be "hot", have voltage. When you depress either the brake pedal or pull the front brake lever, both connections should be "hot'. If so, your problem is between this point and the rear brake light.

Remove the bulb and check the socket. With the switch off, use a small screwdriver to check to see if the contacts in the bottom of the socker will spring in and out. There will be two connectors in the bottom, one is the tail light and one is for the brake light. Turn the switch on and carefully check for one of the connectors that is "hot". This is the tail light connector. Depress the rear brake pedal and check the other connector. It should be "hot' with the pedal depressed. If not, you've got a wire broken or shorted between the rear brake light switch and the lamp socket.
