One Man Job – DIY Brake Bleeding
Fact: DIY Brake Bleeding is a fast one-man job when you put air to work for you.The Secret Behind Reverse Bleeding Don’t force trapped air down. Push it up – and out. Why do some professionals get rock-hard, ultra responsive brakes every time (even on “impossible” hydraulics like you’ll find on ABS cars) while everybody else has to settle for a mushy, weak pedal? Three words for you . . . “compressible trapped air.” Pros have known for years that trapped air kills the response of even high-end brake system . . . and leave your “average” brake or clutch assembly mushy, weak and dangerous. So how do the pros obliterate trapped air, make sure every brake system performs to its top potential and get a rock-hard pedal every time? By using the best tools for the job. For years now the “reverse” brake bleeders from Phoenix Brake Systems have been the “Secret Weapon” behind the rock-hard pedal response of everybody from General Motors, to national chain brake shops, to the US Military . . . (In fact the Army recently decided to rely on Phoenix’s top level bleeder as standard equipment for service on vehicles in world wide.)
Why? Because Phoenix’s Brake Tools Help You Obliterate Trapped AIr Fast And Get Maximum Response Out Of Your Brake System . . . Guaranteed Reverse bleeding: It’s an idea so simply and obviously right that most people ask, Why didn’t anyone think of that before? Reverse Bleeding does not require a scan tool, special tools or clips. Here’s why. Reverse bleeding utilizes fluid paths in which enhanced braking mechanisms offer almost no resistance. Metering valves, proportioning valves, and anti-lock valving are designed to manipulate braking pressure, while proving minimal resistance to fluid as it returns to the master cylinder following the release of braking pressure. Not only can you perform revolutionary reverse bleeding, Phoenix B;eeders can also perform traditional pressure and vacuum bleeding.
One Tool. One Person. 10 Minutes. Every Bleeding MethodDIY Brake Bleeding Trapped Air Means It Takes You Longer To Stop …and a lot can happen in 20 feet Air is a problem. The purpose of a brake or clutch bleeder is to remove trapped air from the hydraulic system. Air is an enemy to the brake system. Since air is compressible, it will allow the brake pedal to move (compressing the air) before the brakes will be activated. This is known as a “spongy” or “soft” brake pedal. If there is a significant amount of air in the brake system, the brakes will not respond at all. This is complete brake failure. So, to have the firmest possible brake pedal pressure and quickest brake system response time, the air must be removed from the system. Phoenix brake bleeder’s remove trapped air better than any other tool in the world. Phoenix Systems make several different model of brake bleeder’s for the professional service technician as well as the do-it-yourselfer.
- Air must be removed for brakes to function properly and quickly
- Air must be removed to have a firm brake pedal
- Phoenix brake bleeder’s removed more trapped air
Never Return a Brake Part Before Bleeding It With A Phoenix Reverse BleederAir in the hydraulic system mimics brake or clutch component failure. The brake pedal may be “spongy” because of trapped air or because a brake part is failing or has failed. And if you don’t properly remove the air from new parts you are installing, it will appear that the new parts are defective. The majority of hydraulic parts returned as “defective” are perfectly fine, they just weren’t bled right. Brake hydraulic parts must be free of air before you can really know if they are defective (unless you physically inspect the internal components).
- Air must be removed to properly diagnose brake components
- Most brake part returns are due to trapped air, not defective parts
- Phoenix brake bleeder’s are the best way to reduce unnecessary returns
