  • Brake Bleeding Made Easy!- Eastwood Brake Bleeding Kit

    Normally when I do brake work on a car I dread the moment when I have to ask a friend, family member, neighbor, etc for help pumping the brake pedal. Not everyone gets the same enjoyment out of bleeding brakes and getting a nice firm pedal as we do! It can be a tedious process, especially if the person pumping the pedal makes an error and pumps the pedal with the bleeder screw open, allowing air to be sucked back into the system. This will make you start all over, and cause unneeded extra work.

    Eastwood Brake Bleeder

    Once again here at Eastwood we worked to make your life easier when completing an often tedious job. Our new Eastwood Brake Bleeder Kit allows you to bleed your brake system simply and without any help from the wife, kids, neighbor, etc! Our bleeder kit allows you to create a vacuum at the caliper or slave cylinder, and pulls air out of the system. This can be easily done at the bleeder without the need to jump back and forth from the pedal or reservoir to the bleeder screw. We know this isn't a product you may use frequently, so we are offering it at an extremely affordable price. This means it will pay for itself after just one use (just exchanging dinner for a few minutes of pedal pumping from your wife will be more costly!).
