Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi. Did you bleed the air out of the caliper that the piston was replaced in?
Have someone pump the brake and then while they are holding the pedal down, loosen the bleeder until air/fluid comes out. Then have them raise the pedal up. Repeat this to get all the air out.
no. and make sure enough fluid stays in the master cylinder.
There is a bleeder on the top of the caliper. It is like an 8mm or 10mm nut on it so you can loosen it to bleed the air out of the caliper. If the rubber cap is on it that is it.
do you mean the penetrating oil?
Thats fine to use. Be careful not to break it off in the caliper. Once you get the air out you will be good to go.
It should not be that difficult. In the attached picture the bleeder is located right under the spring. The bleeders do like to rust in. Sometimes applying a little heat then cooling it with water then doing that a few times will help loosen it. Usually it is easier to just replace the entire caliper instead of rebuilding it.
