Re: Sinking Pedal - Brake Bleeding

Have you got any brake pipe clamps/molegrips,
Pump your pedal, engine off, to extinguish any vacuum in the servo.
Clamp the two rear flexi hoses,, if using mole grips, dont go mad, piece of cardboard between the jaws.
Is the brake pedal firm,.( dont press hard, you will feel the difference)
Do the same on the front,.
Has this made any difference, if no, then its not air!!
If yes, then take the clamps off the front, force the pressure relief valve open, ( Piece of wood, holding the lever away, will do ) bleed the back brakes, slowly pressing the pedal, ..
The order is,,
Rear Right, Rear Left ,, Front Right, Front Left

Did you buy the van like this? Should have asked this at the beginning!!
