Have a helper pump the brake pedal on the 2001 Jetta several times then hold it down. With the pedal down, loosen the bleeder valve at a wheel cylinder and let some fluid flow til the pedal goes to the floor. Close the valve and repeat until the fluid does not have any air coming out with it. Do the same thing at the three other wheels.
Replace the brake line, bleed the brake. top up with brake fluid. Done.
Replace and bleed line
Remove the old line. Measure how long it is. Purchase new line from an auto parts store. Bend it to fit and install. Bleed system.
replace the brake line and then bleed the brakes
Always best to bleed both sides if you change a brake line. EG: Both front or both rear.
If you have not opened the brake system ie. taken off any lines or lost any fluid, you should not have to bleed a brake system. Brake jobs are best done by experienced technicians.
You can't bleed it any other way, you have to bleed it through the bleeder valve to get all the air out.
replace the line and fill and bleed breaks.
You have to remove the brake line making sure you have something to catch to fluid that will drain out. Plug to the line to prevent the system from draining completely. Remove/replace the brake line and refill the master cylinder reservoir and bleed the air from the system( if it is the hose at the caliper, you usually only need to bleed that wheel). If the reservoir drained completely you would have to run a ABS/bleed system test using a scan tool. After the air is all bleed out, recheck/top off the reservoir.
You probably have air in the brake hydraulic line. Bleed the air out of the brake lines.
Sounds Like You Have Air In Your Brake Line Or Lines. Bleed The System. If This Don`t Help And You Brake Shoes Or Brake Pads Are OK. Then It Is Most Likely The Master Cylinder. GOOD LUCK
more than likely you have air in brake line and need to bleed brakes
Remove the line and replace it. Then make sure to keep the master cylinder full while you & a helper bleed the front brake caliber. Be sure and use brake line tools and not open-end wrenches or you will damage the brake lines.
Must remove line and replace with same type break line. Then bleed the system. There are no shortcuts.
Disconnect brake line at the nearest junction Disconnect brake line at the affected wheel cylinder Route new brake line same way old one was Connect both ends Bleed the wheel cylinder on that line MAKE SURE MASTER CYLINDER DOES NOT RUN EMPTY
You must remove it, fit a new one and then bleed the brakes to remove the air in the new line.
someone sits in the car slowly pressing the brake peddle while you have the brake line open. When finished bleeding the brakes, don't forget to refill the master cylinder.
Remove fitting at junction block (usually at center of rear axle) and disconnect at the wheel cylinder Replace line and bleed air from that wheel. Should only have to bleed that line
Remove the tire then remove the brake caliper take the pads off and replace them just like you removed them. Put the brake caliper back on you will need to bleed the brake line on the caliper add brake fluid if needed and put the tire bak on.
First you disconnect the brake line and place it into a large bowl. While someone is adding fresh brake fluid, press firmly on the brake pedal until all air is gone from the line.
Remove wheel Remove brake drum Loosen and remove brake line Remove mounting bolts Pry wheel cylinder off brake shoes Install new cylinder Replace brake lines Replace brake drum Bleed affected brake line
Rubber Line, there are no fixes. You must remove the leaking line and replace it with a new one, then bleed the brakes to remove the air.Steel line(hard line, like down the frame of a pick up) you can cut the bad section out and install brake fittings and flare the brake lines and install a replacement piece.
No, you do not. If you change the caliper, you will have to bleed that brake line. Have someone press on the brake pedal. Open the bleed valve, while they continue to hold the pedal. Close the valve. Repeat 3 times. We did it 4 times, but 3 should do it. Works great!
You may have a collapsed brake hose or a pinched brake line.
