    Bleeding brake callipers on corsa d?

    I understand the concept and how to bleed brakes. But first i would like to know where the bleed nipple on the standard corsa d calliper is and also is the rear drums handbrake only! So if i bleed the brakes i wont need to worry about touching the rears as they are just operated by cable?

    Correct? Also anything i should watch out for when bleeding my brakes? Anything that could seriously cock up the whole braking system?

    Cheers for any help

    The rears also have a bleed nipple on the back.

    The nipple on the fron caliper is on the back on the caliper, it has a rubber cap on it, stick your head behind, you can't miss it.

    No there is nothing to look out for when bleeding the brake other than the make sure you dont bleed them too much and empty the reservoir.

    Why do you feel they need bled, have you changed the fluid?

    As said the rear brakes will need to be bleak aswel.

    When bleeding them just make sure that, you keep the fluid reserviour topped up, and that there's no air bubbles in the system, and make sure the brake pedal stays firm if you push hard on the pedal before driving it. And you should be ok, is fairly straight forward to do.
