Pumping of the brake system

Pumping of the brake system in a forward support of the disk brake mechanism:
the valve of pumping (1) opens a key of 7 mm. The transparent hose (2) lowered in the prepared capacity (3) is put on the valve.

Pumping of the brake system is necessary after repair of the hydraulic drive of the brake system when air got to the brake cylinder or the pipeline:


  1. To fill a receiver with new brake fluid, and also during pumping to watch that liquid was in due time added to a certain level. Otherwise air will get to a tank again.
  2. To remove a dustproof cap from the pumping valve (the sequence of works: behind on the right; behind at the left; in front on the right; in front at the left).
  3. To put on a transparent hose (for example, like a hose of system of washing of glasses) the valve wiped clean and to lower its free end in the capacity which is partially filled with brake fluid.
  4. Ask the assistant to create pressure in system by pressing a brake pedal.
  5. To open the ventilating valve on the corresponding wheel approximately on 1 — 1,5 turn and to lower pressure. The assistant at the same time a leg squeezes out and releases a pedal.
  6. Again to close the valve and to create pressure.
  7. To open the valve as it was already made.
  8. To repeat this process until in a hose any more no air bubbles are visible. (At much the devastated hydraulic system to carry out pumping twice.) Thus, via the valve brake fluid and, of course, air is pumped over.
  9. If any more air bubbles are not visible, then the assistant has to hold a pedal of a brake pressed to the full while you close the valve. To tighten carefully, otherwise it is possible to strip a thread!
  10. To remove air from brakes of other wheels in the same way.
