Customer Question

After bleeding the brakes, we don't get pedal. We get clean fluid but no pedal.

Before you replaced the brake parts, did you have a pedal?

Hi, just checking you still need help with this problem?

Hi, this is Josh checking in to see if you still need any assistance with your problem. I also want to mention in case you haven't checked this, it is very important to make sure the correct calipers are installed on the correct side. If you put the right side caliper on the left and the left side on the right, it will usually bolt up just fine but the bleeder screw will be on the bottom instead of the top, not allowing all the air to escape the caliper. I have seen this happen several times and it is an easy fix! Please let me know if you have any further questions and don't forget to leave a positive rating!
