How to Bleed Your Brakes

Installation Steps

  • Safely Raise & Secure Your Vehicle
  • Expect to Make A Mess
  • Get Ready
    • Open your vehicle’s hood
    • Remove the master cylinder cap and slightly loosen the bleeder screw on the wheel furthest away from the master cylinder with a wrench or socket, but don’t allow it to leak
    • Attach a brake bleeding tool to the bleed screw located on the top of the brake caliper
  • Bleed Your Brakes
  • Repeat the Process on All Remaining Bleeder Screws
    • Be sure to tighten each bleeder screw before removing your bleeding tool. This will ensure every last bit of air will be removed from your car’s braking system
    • Test your vehicle’s pedal feel after bleeding each corner. Once your brakes are properly bled, you should be able to build up pressure in the system with a few pumps of the pedal and should not be able to press the brake pedal to the floor
  • Clean Up and Hit the Road
    • With all of the air removed from your braking system, tighten the last bleeder screw and remove the bleeding tool from it
    • Check the master cylinder’s fluid level and top it off as needed with clean brake fluid
    • Spray each caliper with brake cleaner to remove any residue. This will allow you to check each bleeder screw for leaks over time
    • Remove and drip trays or cardboard and carefully lower your vehicle back onto its wheels
    • Close the hood and enjoy
