Evening All Forum Users,

Just a quick enqiry, I have changed the front pads on my BMW 520I 1990.
I am under gonig bleeding them as they are quite spongy.

Is there any sequence in which i should bleed the brakes of the car?
Doesn't seem to be al that great at the moment and could really do with some help.

Thanks very much

Scotty

1. you changed the front pads; did you check the back ones?
2. Bleeding IF NEEDED (i.e. changing caliber/hoses) usually when changing break pads ONLY there is no need for bleeding; bleeding constitute getting the AIR out of the lines/system; air will not get into the lines by simply pushing back the caliber piston; unless you loosen one of the hoses (that is open a closed system); did you?

regards
billb

the correct order is:

back right
back left
front right
front left

that is the proper way to bleed them

Thanks very much for that.

I actually replaced the entire caliper and pads on the front wheels.
So i needed to bleed them.

Thanks very much for that.
