    How to Check and Add Brake Fluid

    • Determine the location of the brake fluid reservoir.
    • Look inside the reservoir to determine the current fluid level. If it's at the "full" mark, close the reservoir and mark the date of the inspection in your maintenance log.
    • If the fluid level is below the "add" line, have your disc brakes checked. As disc brakes wear down, the fluid is displaced into the brake calipers. Most brake fluid reservoirs are designed so you should not have to add or "top off" the fluid. If the fluid looks dark, it is time to have it changed.

    Bleeding the Brake Lines to Remove Air

    Usually, two people are required to bleed a brake line; one to depress the brake pedal and one to drain the fluid into a container. These directions are the basic procedure for bleeding a brake line. Consult your service manualWhat is the correct method for changing the brake oil of Honda civic exi 2006 - arrow 10x10 before you begin to bleed your own lines; this WILL NOT work for newer cars.
    Have the following items handy:

    • A section of plastic, vinyl or rubber tubing long enough to reach from the brake caliper to the clear plastic containerWhat is the correct method for changing the brake oil of Honda civic exi 2006 - arrow 10x10.
    • A wrench to open and close the bleeder valve.
    • A clear plastic container containing at least one inch of clean brake fluid, or enough to submerge the plastic tubing. Clear plastic is important so you can see the air bubbles as they exit the brake line.

    Here are the basic instructions for the process:

    • Open the reservoir and add brake fluid up to the full line.
    • Replace the cap on the master cylinder reservoir before you begin bleeding the line. Never remove the reservoir cap while the brake pedal is depressed.
    • Starting with the wheel rear wheels, locate the brake cylinder or caliper and find the bleed valve on the backWhat is the correct method for changing the brake oil of Honda civic exi 2006 - arrow 10x10 side. It will look line a bolt with a nipple on it and may have a rubber cap that you will have to remove.
    • Place one end of the clear tube into the clear container to which you have added approximately one inch of brake fluid. Be sure to do this stepWhat is the correct method for changing the brake oil of Honda civic exi 2006 - arrow 10x10 before you connect the other end of the tube to the bleed valve.
    • With the tube end in the container of brake fluid, connect the other end of the tube to the bleed valve.
    • Use a wrench to loosen the valve on the brake caliper just slightly. Do not allow the brake fluid to begin to flow; just loosen the valve enough to make it easy to release when you are readyWhat is the correct method for changing the brake oil of Honda civic exi 2006 - arrow 10x10 to bleed the line.
    • Now, have the person inside the vehicleWhat is the correct method for changing the brake oil of Honda civic exi 2006 - arrow 10x10 pump the brake pedal a few times to build up pressure in the line, and then have them hold the brake pedal down firmly, without further pumping.
    • While the brake pedal is held in place, loosen the bleed valve enough to allow a small amount of brake fluid to flow out of the brake line and into your container.
    • Watch for the air bubbles to exit the tube placed in the clear plastic containerWhat is the correct method for changing the brake oil of Honda civic exi 2006 - arrow 10x10with the brake fluid.
    • The person inside the vehicle should only allow the pedal to travel about 2/3rds of the way to the floor. Allowing the pedal to reach the floor may damage a master cylinder. Once the pedal reaches this position, the person inside should signals you with an "OK" so you knowWhat is the correct method for changing the brake oil of Honda civic exi 2006 - arrow 10x10 to tighten the bleeder screw. After the screw is tightened, signal the person inside with an "OK" so he may release the pedal.
    • Repeat this action of pumping the brakes and bleeding the fluid until there are no more bubbles remaining in the line. It is very important to remember to periodically check the fluid level in the reservoir, and always replace the cap before actuating the brake pedal.
    • Repeat the processWhat is the correct method for changing the brake oil of Honda civic exi 2006 - arrow 10x10 above for the three remaining brake lines. Be sure your helper pumps and holds the brake pedal each time.
    • Once all four brake lines have been bled, fillWhat is the correct method for changing the brake oil of Honda civic exi 2006 - arrow 10x10 the brake fluid reservoir to the "full" line, then close the cap,
      Thoroughly rinse any spilled brake fluid spilled in the engineWhat is the correct method for changing the brake oil of Honda civic exi 2006 - arrow 10x10 compartment off with water.
