BLEED BRAKES

Audi A4

Audi 2003
A4 3.0

Ok I put in the rear brakes, the brakes are on but now I am having problems bleeding the system. I keep pumping but the brakes do not seam to be grabbing and getting harder. I am doing one side at a time but no luck I tried doing both side at the same time but no luck either. I'm supposed do anything special than other cars please thank you

You may have to get a pressure bleeder to do the job. There are some low dollar units out there that are really nothing more than bug sprayers and work just fine. Keep in mind that brake fluid is hygroscopic (fancy term for it will pull water out of the air) so limit the fluid's exposure to the air. The correct adapter for the reservoir might be a problem, but you might try online or from a professional tool distributor (SNAP-ON or MAC for instance)
