Post how to bleed front brakes on 01-05 zuma
OK I have had trouble bleeding my brakes finally today I got them working after like 4 months of trying I found out you gotta make sure the caliper piston is not pushed in all the way.Then take brake master cylinder cover off check fluid fill it up 9/10 of the way then get a dental syringe put a small hose on it that will fit over bleeder.Then loosen bleeder then pump brake lever a few times then just pull on syringe get fluid inside of it.Then push down on syringe and hold up right for you don't get any air in the lines.Slowly push the fluid from the syringe back in the caliper until it is nearly empty tighten bleeder take syringe off top off brake fluid.Put cover back on master cylinder. I had a bunch of trouble with mine so I thought I'd post this up.

Thanks...but have mercy with older folks like me and take some care of a halfway correct spelling, okay? ;)

That's the longest sentence I've ever seen, and it doesn't even have a period at the end.

My second grade teacher would have scheduled an emergency meeting with my parents if I'd written something like that.

Sorry, I can't help myself. I'm a magazine editor by trade.
