    how do i bleed my hydroboost brakes. i think i might have gotten air into the system because i might have run out of fluid in the resivore. how do i bleed the brakes for this. i also broke the bleeder screw on the front passenger brake. it is still shut just broken off. does the pump need bleeding too?

    The brakes are separate from the booster. So they bleed just like any other brake system. To bleed the booster I think you just jack up the front of the truck and cycle the wheels back and forth as if you were bleeding a regular PS pump but that should only be necessary if you've opened the hydraulic system.

    You may be able to get it out with an EZ out type tool. If not you'll be replacing the calipers. They are really pretty cheap though. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
