Today I put a refurbished ABS pump back in place of a 2002 LT of a friend of mine. I bleeded the brake circuits as followed (and according the cycle: pull the brake, valve open, valve closed, loosen the brake)
1. from the front brake to the pump on hand pressure
2. from the rear brake to the pump on hand pressure
3. from the pump to the rear brake caliper with the ignition on and using the abs pump itself
4. from the pump to the front calipers with the ignition on and using the abs pump itself
The brakes are working fine with no ABS errors. The rear brake is superb. However, the hand brake can still be squeezed into the handle.
On this forum I got the advice to put tie-rips to the front brake and a strap on the rear pedal for a night or so. Will do that but I have the followinhg questions:
- is air in the circuit the reason that I can squeeze the hand brake that far?
- What else can I try to get the last air out?
