    I was taking the rear dif cover off for inspection and I losened the rear brake line ( hard line going to the wheel) by moving the bracket outta the way of the cover. Now I can't seem to bleed the brakes or even tighten it up enough to keep it from leaking. Do you have to bleed it from that section and not the wheel, if so how.... /forums/images/icons/confused.gif /forums/images/icons/confused.gif /forums/images/icons/confused.gif tired of no pedal! /forums/images/icons/blush.gif /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    you should try and fix your leak first and then go from there.

    How much fluid came out? Yeah, I agree though fix the leak. After that I would just go the normal bleeding of everything.

    I understand , but do you need to bleed it from where it's leaking also, or will it eventually get pushed out the wheel opening? thanks guy's... /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    I am thinking that you should just fix the leak. It could suck little air bubbles in. I would bleed at leaking side at the wheel.

    every time you push on the brake pedal and the brake return springs push back on the wheel cylanders you are more than likely like fr8train said getting air bubbles back in the system.that means until you fix the leak in the system you will never get the brakes to bleed properly
