sorry missed that.

Here are the steps to get the air out. Thanks

NOTE: The brakes should be bled whenever a brake line is disconnected. If a hydraulic line is disconnected at the master cylinder, start at the master cylinder, and then the slave cylinder farthest from the brake master cylinder, and move to the next farthest slave cylinder until all four cylinders have been bled. If the disconnection point is anywhere except the master cylinder, start at the point closest to the disconnection, and move to the next closest slave cylinder until all four cylinders have been bled.

  1. On level ground, jack up the vehicle and support it evenly on safety stands.



  1. Remove the bleeder cap and attach a vinyl tube to the bleeder screw.
  2. Place the other end of the vinyl tube in a clear fluid-filled container.
  3. One person should depress the brake pedal a few times, and then hold it in the depressed position.
  4. A second person should loosen the bleeder screw, drain out the fluid, and close the screw by using the Special Service Tool (SST) .
  5. Repeat step 4 and 5 until no air bubbles are seen. The reservoir should be kept about 3/4 full during bleeding to prevent air from reentering the lines.
    • Tightening torque 5.9-8.8 Nm (53-78 inch lbs.) .
  1. Check for correct brake operation.
  2. Verify that there is no fluid leakage. Wipe off any spilled fluid immediately.
  3. After bleeding the brakes, add brake fluid to MAX.

You first have to bleed at the master cylinder. If all fails then you will have to replace the master cylinder as there must be a issue there..



When removing the master cylinder, bleed the air from the area shown, then bleed the air from the wheel side.
