I can't be much help, not sure why you weren't getting fluid unless you still had the pedal depressed to keep the leaks down while swapping calipers.So I
So I am actually finally on the last step which is bleeding the brakes. I finally got my transmission pan sorted out and a few other things.
I tried to bleed my brakes the other night and I was getting barely any fluid using the compressor tool so you dont have to have someone pumping the brakes. I had my buddy pump it a few times and then hold it down and then I cracked it open and got some fluid through.
I will admit that I left the brake lines unconnected overnight and then reconnected everything the next morning so a good amount of fluid probably drained out and I am not sure if the reservoir was totally empty or not because I didnt check before refilling it. But I am guessing I have a fair amount of air in my system. I am going to try manually bleeding the brakes with the help of my buddy since that seemed to move fluid last night for the few tries I gave it before calling it a night.
Anyways any advice on how to get the majority of the air out of the brake lines? I sat there with the compressor tool running getting very small amounts of fluid . Ive read about the abs or master cylinder getting filled with air and being a big fix.
I will say that if you let things open to gravity bleed and got air you ABS pump, you will probably need some type of tool or scanner to get it bled. I know AlphOBD has the ability, but not sure what else. Someone else will have to help with that, I've never done it myself. Don't think it is huge, just need something that will communicate with the ABS module and get it to cycle or something.
