Help on bleeding brakes

3448 Views 11 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  DrBimmer
Put 330i brakes on my 323ci along with stainless steel brake lines, my pedal is now too soft. do I need to rebleed the system or put on a 330i master cylinder. If I rebleed has anyone used a vacum system, what special steps should I take, or is the use of a pressure bleeder the only way to bleed the lines.

I've used the vacuum approach, it's not as good as a pressure bleeder. I highly recommend the pressure bleeder. All of the approaches work, some just better than others. Pumping the pedal and opening the bleed nipple works too. Sounds to me like you've still got air in the lines.
