Whats Wrong With My Brakes


Recommended Posts

bleeding the brakes and changing the pads don't have to go together.

When you bleed the brakes you should start with the wheel furthest from the master cylinder and work your way to the closest.

Try that first it will only cost a bottle of fluid.

unless you have thread tape on the nipples you cant bleed them yourself.

you can cheat by putting the worn out ones in pumping the pedal to take up the slack.

then open the bleeder nipple and using a screwdriver push the pad into the caliper by levering the screwdriver

against the disc and the pad wedging it back pushing the pistons in. this will force the excess fluid out of the caliper. rather than pushing the old and posibly air filled fluid up the brake hoses.
