Bleeding Brake System

CAUTION:

  • Turn the ignition switch OFF and disconnect battery negative terminal before performing the work.
  • Monitor the fluid level in the reservoir tank while performing the air bleeding
  • Do not spill or splash brake fluid on painted surfaces. Brake fluid may seriously damage paint. Wipe it off immediately and wash with water if it gets on a painted surface.
  • Always use new brake fluid for refilling. Do not reuse the drained brake fluid.
  • Do not allow foreign matter (e.g. dust) and oils other than brake fluid to enter the reservoir tank.
  1. Connect a vinyl tube to the bleeder valve of the rear right brake.
  2. Fully depress the brake pedal 4 to 5 times.
  3. Loosen the bleeder valve and bleed air with the brake pedal depressed, and then quickly tighten the bleeder valve.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all of the air is out of the brake line.
  5. Tighten the bleeder valve to the specified torque.
  • Front disc brake: refer to BR "BRAKE CALIPER ASSEMBLY : Exploded View".
  • Rear drum brake: refer to BR "Exploded View".
  1. Perform steps 1 to 5. Occasionally fill with the brake fluid in order to keep the reservoir tank at least half of MAX line. Bleed air in the following order: rear right brake → front left brake → rear left brake → and front right brake in order.
  2. Check that the fluid level in the reservoir tank is within the specified range after air bleeding. Refer to BR "Inspection".
  3. Check each item of brake pedal. Adjust it if the measurement value is not the standard. Refer to BR"Inspection and Adjustment".

FLUID LEAK

Check for brake fluid leakage from the master cylinder mounting face, reservoir tank mounting face and brake pipe connections.

BRAKE BOOSTER

OPERATION

Depress the brake pedal several times at 5-second intervals with the engine stopped. Start the engine with the brake pedal fully depressed. Check that the clearance between brake pedal and dash lower panel decreases.

NOTE: A slight impact with a small click may be felt on the pedal when the brake pedal is fully depressed. This is a normal phenomenon due to the brake system operation.

AIR TIGHT

  1. Run the engine at idle for 1 minute to apply vacuum to the brake booster, and stop the engine. Then depress the brake pedal several times at 5-second intervals until the accumulated vacuum is released to atmospheric pressure. Check that the clearance between brake pedal and dash lower panel gradually increases each time the brake pedal is depressed when performing this operation.
  2. Depress the brake pedal with the engine running. Then stop the engine while holding down the brake pedal. Check that the brake pedal stroke does not change after holding down the brake pedal for 30 seconds or more.
