HINT:

If the brake pedal height is not within specification, confirm that there are no other malfunctions before adjusting the brake pedal height.

(b) Brake inspection

(1) Check that the disc brake pads of each wheel are installed correctly.

(2) Check that the bleeder plug and union bolt is not loose, and that there are no damaged gaskets or brake fluid leaks, for each wheel cylinder.

(c) Brake fluid leaks and air in brake line inspection

(1) Check and take a note of the fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir assembly.

(2) Repeatedly depress the brake pedal and confirm that the brake pedal feels normal (no air in the system, etc.).

(3) Check if the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir assembly has changed.

(4) If the brake fluid level has decreased, check for leaks due to damaged brake lines or hoses, loose union nuts, damaged brake master cylinder sub-assembly seals, etc.

(d) Bleeding air from brake system

(1) Bleed air from the brake lines and brake actuator assembly.
