How do I get the air out of my brakes? I almost ran right out of fluid, so I added more, now my brakes are being pressed to the floor when I use them. There must be something I can do without having to get under the car as I live in an apartment and don't have any access to a garage and it is very cold out currently.

Thanks for all the help in advance. Nicole

The wheels have to be removed to access the bleeders to bleed the system.

What did you replace? Was there an issue?

Brakes were fine yesterday, went to use them today and they were spongy, almost nonexistant.I had o pump them 3 or 4 times to build up enough pressure for them to stop. Checked the brake resevoir, it was below the min. Line, so I filled it to max. Issue continues with the brakes needing to be pumped 3 or 4 times to make a complete stop.

You may have a failing master cylinder. Try bleeding them first. Look for leaks under the car as well.
