Pressure Bleeding

Print

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
    NOTE
    This procedure covers bleeding of the base brakes only. On vehicles equipped with ABS, refer to the bleeding procedure located under the ABS portion of this section.


    NOTE
    Use Mopar® brake fluid, or an equivalent quality fluid meeting SAE J1703-F and DOT 3 standards only. Use fresh, clean fluid from a sealed container at all times.

  2.  
  3. Follow the manufacturers instructions carefully when using pressure equipment. Do not exceed the tank manufacturers pressure recommendations. Generally, a tank pressure of 15-20 psi is sufficient for bleeding.
  4.  
  5. Fill the bleeder tank with recommended fluid and purge air from the tank lines before bleeding.
  6.  
  7. Do not pressure bleed without a proper master cylinder adapter. The wrong adapter can lead to leakage, or drawing air back into the system.
