Pressure Bleeding

Print

Follow pressure bleeder manufacturer's instructions for use of pressure bleeding equipment. Use Special Tool C-3496-B (bleeder tank) with Special Tool 8224 (master cylinder reservoir adapter) to pressurize the hydraulic system for bleeding.

  1. Following the same wheel circuit sequence as prescribed for manual bleeding.
  2.  
  3. Attach a clear plastic hose to the bleeder screw and feed the hose into a clear jar containing enough fresh brake fluid to submerge the end of the hose.
  4.  
  5. Open the bleeder screw at least one full turn or more to obtain a steady stream of brake fluid.
  6.  
  7. After approximately 4-8 ounces of fluid have been bled through the brake circuit.
  8.  
  9. Close the bleeder screw when an air-free flow is maintained in the clear plastic hose and jar.
  10.  
  11. Repeat this procedure at all the remaining bleeder screws.
  12.  
  13. Check the brake pedal travel. If pedal travel is excessive or has not been improved, some air may still be trapped in the system. Bleed the brakes again as necessary.
  14.  
  15. Carefully and slowly at first test drive the vehicle to verify the brakes are operating properly and pedal feel is correct.
