Yes you CAN, just not as easily as if you were bleeding a new one before putting it in, on your bench.
What makes it more difficult? Our MC seems pretty open and has enough room to work. As long as you have someone to pump the brakesYes you CAN, just not as easily as if you were bleeding a new one before putting it in, on your bench.
That’s what I thought, just makin sure I wasn’t missing something. I’m about to put the wheels back on to test what I did yesterday and if that didn’t do the trick, MC is next.That's about it. If it's in a vice on your bench, you can just push the cylinder by yourself as you watch the bubbles and fluid level. If you have another person to help, it shouldn't be bad.
Are you still seeing any bubble’s or micro bubbles at all when bleeding the fronts. I ended up bleeding the ABS system several times which most likely didn’t need to. How I solved my problem was to just BLEED BLEED BLEED!! So many times I couldn’t even remember how many times. On the last time i did it, I drove my car the next day and low and behold, I finally noticed a big difference in the brakes. Yes they were working good enough to drive and safely stop at anytime, but something told me they just weren’t right. So I went back and bled them again and again until the last time they finally worked. I kept seeing micro bubbles and assumed those needed to be out. Which they did. It cost me a lot of brake fluid but the persistence paid off. Again, bleed bleed bleed, test drive, then bleed bleed bleed until they work properly! That’s my advice.Any news? I’m having similar issues where I let the MC run low during fluid change. Now my back brakes are doing 90% of the stopping
You probably have air in the ABS actuator - which is a bitch to fix. You either take it to a dealer so they can use a tool to activate it (pump the air out), or do a lot of hard stopping on slick surfaces like gravel or ice, then rebleed the lines.Any news?
