Re: Brakes

Brakes are pretty simple
That was the first thing I learned how to change on my car
All of my calipers were shot when I bought my car
What do you need to know??

But the calibers have fluid coming out but they are not getting pressure to the piston in te caliber and I Reyes bleeding the main slots on the block right below the fluid houseing and then I tried a brake line pump and it wasn't working

U followed the procedure for bleeding brakes? Try this; go to www.autozone.com and look up the procedure for replacing a caliper. They have basically an online hayens manual.
