1995 Chevy Beretta mileage: 88,000. I need to rebuild the brake master cylinder. The car has anti lock brakes and the Haynes manual says I need to take the car to a service center to bleed the brakes since special tools are required. I was wondering what are these special tools? I have access to an air-operated bleeder if that is what is required. Please help on this, I am capable of the rebuild but want to make sure that I will be able to bleed the brakes after the job is done.
An air operated power brake bleeder is the proper tool used to bleed the brake system in your car. When rebuilding the master cylinder and before reinstalling on the car, bench-bleed the master cylinder to remove as much air as possible. This will make bleeding the system later a lot easier.
