    hi
    carried out a search but can't find the best way to bleed my brakes on my landy 90td:confused: :confused:

    the front brakes work great but it appears the rear brakes do not brake very well in fact the pedal feels soft:eek: :eek: checked today no fluid leaks well no brake fluid, adjusted rear brakes

    the landy pasted the MOT several months ago and the brakes where all chaged at that time and where good:) :)

    how do i bleed them?????

    many thanks

    lucky you...

    mines still on axle stands with some 200tdi calipers which need modifying and fitting on the bench. plenty of work left yet and an MOT to earn!

    was looking for assistance and to build up my knowledge, just to make sure i have everything working correctly:p :p :p :p

    since changing the axle as stated my brakes are 100% better:D :D :D

    did the balancing act with the disc's before i fitted them so i know the disc's are well and truly balanced:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    many thanks
