Toyota Venza: Bleeding

BLEEDING

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • Do not allow brake fluid to adhere to any painted surface such as the vehicle body. If brake fluid leaks onto any painted surface, immediately wash it off.
  • Before bleeding the brake system, confirm that the reservoir located above the master cylinder assembly is filled with brake fluid.
  • If bleeding is performed with the engine running or the engine switch on (IG), DTC C1441 will be stored. Make sure to clear the DTCs when work is complete.

HINT:

If any component of the brake system is removed and reinstalled, or if air in the brake lines is suspected, bleed the brake system.

PROCEDURE

2. BLEED BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER

NOTICE:

  • To prevent brake fluid from damaging painted surfaces, cover any surrounding parts with a piece of cloth.
  • Be sure to clean your hands before bleeding from master cylinder to avoid any potential contamination of the brake system. Contamination, for example by dirt particles or mineral oil, could lead to functional brake problem.
