Re: Sinking Pedal - Brake Bleeding

Thank you for the replies.

I will get myself a Clip ordered (I had been toying between that and a i907 reader) as I imagine it will come in useful more than once.

In the mean time I will try clamping the rear pipes as described and then the front.

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!!
sorry, this is a test for air in the calipers?
If it doesn't improve with the clamps this could still mean there is air in the abs module, no?

I did buy the van with the brakes like this sadly.

Piston, caliper or brake pad/shoe seized so not moving freely and not hitting a hard stop.
Thanks i will also check the rear pistons are not seized.

I will update the thread when i hopefully get some results.
Thanks again
