Bleeding the Brakes

Anyone know how to bleed the brakes on a 06 Mustang Gt? Pictures would help but not necessary

Bleeding the Brakes

Well judging by the question I was assuming you knew, but wanted to know if it were different.

Skip Google, YouTube has lots of videos on it.

Also check the autoparts stores diy section. You'll want 2 people, or to rent a pump/ one man bleeder.

Bleeding the Brakes

1. Put hose to valve.
2. Buddy press brake pedal and hold.
3. Open valve with wrench.
4. Close valve
5. Buddy let's go of pedal.

Rinse and repeat


Youtube will have endless videos for it. Doesn't change just cause it's a Mustang.

Yeah I saw one of those videos yesterday. Have to do it on each caliper right? And keep an eye on the reservoir so that the brake fluid level doesn't drop and get more air in the system right?

Yes keep an eye on that reservoir and add fluid as needed.

Make sure when you go back up on the pedal to close the valve, as you don't want to add more air into the system.

Also Make sure you start at the back right, then go back left, then go front right, then drivers side.

Right, left, right, left.

If you're going to be doing this more than once and want invest a little. Get a pressure kit.
It has a large container for brake fluid, which connects to the master cylinder with a plate clamped on top of it.
Then you pump it up to pressurize the system. Then you go from wheel to wheel and open the bleeder valve until it's free of bubbles.
It's a pretty cool system for around $130 or so.

If I were you I'd use a turkey baser and suck all the old fluid out, till the there is just barely any left so the little hole in the bottom still had fluid covering it then fill with fresh fluid and then bleed the brakes. And I suggest you get a set of quality line wrenches so you don't strip the bleeder screw
