    GRRRRR Brake job problems

    So I went to replace the brakes with 2 new front calipers, and all new rotors all around. Here is the end result, I broke the bleeder screw on the brand new drivers side front caliper. When taking off one of the bolts of the rear caliper it was so rusted in snapped in half.


    So now my question: I clearly have a ton of air in the lines now, what is the easiest way to drain and bleed the entire system? I want to put in DOT4 fluid.

    also

    Does the rear piston that you have to screw in to get the caliper back on pop out when you engage the brakes with the car on?

    If you have air coming out you have a leak somewhere... What exactly did you change, if calipers did you use new copper washers on the hoses?
