    Brake bleeding problem

    I attempted to flush the brake system on my '97 2.8 today using a power bleeder. The right rear was no problem, but on the left rear I could not get fluid to come out of the bleed screw. I even tried pushing the pedal. Any thoughts?

    Did you completely remove bleeder screw?

    Did you visually inspect the line?

    Next step

    I'll try poking a heavy copper wire in there today. I don't want to have to tear down and rebuild the caliper if I can avoid it.

    The wire worked. Makes me wonder when was last time brakes were bled. Thanks for responding, guys.
