    Brake bleeding?

    Not so much of how to do it just how much really

    Just coming to the final stages of me 308's but was wondering how much do I bleed through? I've bled about 400-500ml through the back ones.

    Will that be enough to bleed the air out and fill the calipers aswell?

    Regards

    You should notice that the brake fluid will look cleaner/no bubbles in it, once it reaches that point it should be enough, obviously do this on each caliper.

    You will only need to bleed then if you fitted new lines or calipers on the front
    they should work fine give them a few stops to get up to temp
    bed them in over a few days then give them hell

    Well I was changing them, a fair bit of fluid came out of the lines even with the clamp on.

    I've bled the back two, can feel it getting stiffer, haven't done the front two.

    I am changing the front calipers as we speak, so that's probably why they're spongey. Thing is, the pedal virtually goes to the ground, but with a fair bit of effort anyway.
