All car owners sooner or later face the deterioration of the braking system when the caliper began to react to the brake pedal. It certainly can happen for many reasons, but the main and common one is the air from entering the brake system. This requires pumping the brakes, which is carried out by two workers.
Thanks to the resourceful people we have a new way of pumping, which can be handled by one person. This method consists in finding a simple device, production of which will be described in this article.
To manufacture the device for prorolling of brakes we need the following components:
- Gypsum putty;
- Plastic jar with lid 150 ml;
- A small magnet.
- Stationery knife;
- Set of drills;
- Duct tape.
Instructions for bleeding brakes at home
Take the dropper and remove all unnecessary devices, leaving only the hoses and the tee in the middle. One hose, which was connected to liquids we also not useful, so cut it close to the tee.
Remove tee cap to enter the syringe and cut down one side of the tee flush with a hacksaw.
All the bumps that formed when sawing remove with a knife, and finalize with sandpaper. Turned a smooth double.
Now we need to get rid of the unnecessary holes which have formed in place of the saw cut. Insert into the center hole of tee anything thick (will fit the hose that we cut). Tightly trambeam unnecessary hole in a plaster putty and fill it with superglue. As the glue dries, the sealer can be removed.
Take a jar you are going to get brake fluid and drill it in the lid hole diameter of 4 mm under the hose. Also in the lid with an awl make a hole through which to get air. Put on hose clamp from the dropper, which regulates the flow of liquid and completely covers it and insert into the drilled hole of the hose with a double. Clip is needed in order to when disconnecting the hose from the fitting the brake fluid is not flowed out of the hose. Put on the tape the magnet on the lateral surface of the jar.
Take any rubber band that is tightly put on our double and drill a hole in it depending on what’s fitting for pumping (may be suitable for elastic fluids which serves to connect needle with the hose).
Put the rubber band on the double superglue. It is best to choose the rubber tip which is resistant to the mordant brake fluid.
At this stage, unable to praise yourself, because your device is ready! Now, if you have any need to bleed the brake system do the following:
- Slightly weaken the wrench to the bleeder valve;
- Put on the rubber tip of the device to the fitting;
- Fasten the jar with a magnet to the vehicle body in a convenient location;
- Unveiled a little more fitting, that would have been seen that the liquid is gone;
- Gently push on the brake pedal and slowly let go;
- Pump system;
- Close the clamp on the hose and disconnect it;
- Wrap the fitting.
