Customer Question
I just changed brakes...

I just changed brakes and rotors front and back. Front brakes are working but back brakes are not. Not sure how to bleed the brake lines

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tried "bleeding the brakes" to get any air out of the line?

I'm not sure what to do for that

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Pontiac?

Pontiac g6 2007

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your G6 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing at this point

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just if the brake line fitting is the one I slightly open or!!!!
