View Full Version : Need advanced brake help...Calling brake system masters!

So here is the deal on Tuesday I was on my way home from work, barley had the pedal depressed then heard a bang. The pedal went to the floor my abs engaged then the pedal was stiff again. Since then I have replaced all 4 calipers and bled them till new fluid came out of all 4 corners.

My issue is no matter how much I bleed the brakes my pedal refuses to get stiff.
Thanks for any help.
I have to swap my calipers around for I just learned they are all on the wrong side. That will be don't today after work.

That's probably your problem right there. If the calipers were on the wrong side the bleeder screw would be on the bottom, and bleeding the brakes wouldn't get all the air out. You probably have air in the calipers. The bleeder screw has to be on top.
