Manual brake bleeding is the most common method of bleeding brakes; however, you will need to enlist the help of an assistant. With your assistant sitting in the driver's seat, repeat the following steps a number of times on each brake until you are sure there is no air trapped in the system. Place a three foot piece of vinyl hose on the end of the bleeder screw to direct old fluid into a plastic container. Remove the master cylinder cap. Bleed in this sequence. Start at the RR, then LR, RF, and end up at the LF. Make sure to keep the system full of fresh fluid while doing this. Instruct your assistant to pump the brake pedal 5 times. Instruct your assistant to press and hold the brake pedal firmly. Open a bleeder screw, (use only a boxed end wrench) and let the air and old fluid escape Close the bleeder screw Instruct your assistant to release the brake pedal Wait 5 seconds & repeat the procedure until no air is seen exiting the bleeder screw.

How do you bleed the brakes on a 1997 dodge diesel?

It takes two people. # Suck the brake fluid out of the reservoir and replace with new fluid. # There is a bleed screw on each wheel, it looks like a grease zirk. Loosen the bleed screw and have someone push the break peddle and hold it. # Tighten the screw then they can release the breaks. # Repeat step 2-3 until the brake fluid is clean # Repeat on each wheel, refilling the break reservoir after each wheel. Do not get air in the lines either by sucking the reservoir dry or by releasing the breaks when the bleed screw is loose.

How do you change the brake pads of a 2002 Volvo s60 Is it normal to have loose brake pedal after getting your brakes changed?

Well, I am far from a mechanic, but I had some break trouble a while back. I even ended up in a wreck because of it. What happened is the break lines had a clog in them. It s very very extremely important to bleed your breaks very very very well after changing them. You should take it back and have them bleed the breaks again. There is a right way and a wrong way to do it also. Be very careful. You really need good breaks. They are extremely important!
