| | Brake Master Cylinder replacement
I recently had to replace the Brake Master Cylinder on my 2002 Mustang. I remembered the procedure I used a few years past on one of my cars. With my Mustang parked in the driveway facing the garage, the front of the car was elevated slightly. I removed the master cylinder, drilled a hole in the old reservoir cap to install a tube fitting from my hand held vacuum pump. I installed the new Master Cylinder, filled it with brake fluid, screwed on the old cap with the tube fitting. I connected the vacuum pump tubing, in a few minutes I removed the air bubbles in the bottom of master cylinder, and screwed on the new cap. My Wife pumped the pedal for me to bleed the old fluid out of the brake lines. I was finished in less than an hour, and the brake pedal was rock hard. A picture of the hand pump kit is attached.
