Do you need to bleed your brakes when you change the brake pads?
No, as long as your pedal seemed good before the brake job, and you do not loosen the bleeder at all, you do not have to bleed the brakes.
Why would you lose pressure in your brake pad after changing the back brakes on a 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix?
YOU ONLY BLEED BRAKES WHEN YOU DISCONECT ANY BRAKE LINES OR HOSES OR IF YOU CHANGING YOUR ENTIRE FLUID. IF YOU JUST CHANGE PADS AND OR SHOES YOU DO NOT NEED TO BLEED IT. JUST MAKE SURE THAT WHEN YOU PUSH THE PISTON BACK ON YOUR CALIPERS, THE RESERVOIR CAP MUST BE OFF TO AVOID DAMAGING ANY COMPONENTS.
You can take it off the wheel and squeeze it together with a bench wise. You will then need to bleed the air out of all four brakes. To bleed the brakes have someone pump the brake pedal and hold it down while you loosen the bleed valve located on the brake caliper until brake fluid comes out, then retighten the bleed screw and repeat on the other three wheels.
adjust isn't really the right word here. if the pedal is soft and the brakes suck, and you have to push it real hard to get any reaction out of the thing, pushing harder may not be the solution. Check the brake fluid reservoir , make sure its full. regardless if it is or not you should bleed the brakes , and you may need new pads. if the brake fluid is real empty you…
You bleed the rear brakes the same way you bleed the front brakes. If you can't get brake fluid to come out the rear bleeders you may have a faulty master cylinder or the master was allowed to empty out the reservoir that feeds the rear and now it is air bound. Removing the master cylinder and bench bleeding the master may be what you need to do and don't let the reservoir go dry!
IF YOU DID NOT OPEN THE BLEEDER SCREWS ON THE CALIPER WHEN YOU PUSHED THE PISTON BACK IN, THEN THERE IS NO NEED TO BLEED THE SYSTEM. WHEN YOU GET EVERTHING BACK TOGETHER, MAKE SURE THE RESERVOIR IS FULL, THEN JUST PUMP THE BRAKE PEDAL UNTIL IT IS SOLID AGAIN. To bleed the hydraulic brakes; you fill the reservior, with brake fluid then,go to the farthest.cylinder,find the bleed plug(near the wheel cylinder, looks like a…

Do you have to bleed the rear brakes of a 2001 Volvo S60 after replacing brake pads If so where is the bleeder and how do you do it?
There should be no need to bleed the brakes after replacing the rear (or front) brake pads. Make sure you place a rag around the top of the fluid reservoir to catch any excess as you press the pistons back into the caliper body though. If the brake pedal has gone spongy after pad replacement this suggests that the piston seals have failed or the caliper cylinder facess have corroded. On mine the bleed nipples…
