    Brake calipers broken bleeders

    Anyone know of the easiest ways to fix broken bleeders on my calipers? I went to bleed the breaks and have a combined 6 bleeder broke. Any help would be awesome thanks.

    Depends...What type of calipers?
    If thier Wilwoods the brass under the bleader is 1/8npt pipe so you unscrew them and replace with theses units.

    If you have OEM type you need to use a left hand drill bit and hope they come out if not dissassemble and drill and tap for 1/8 NPT and use the above part but it's a pain in the butt.

    If you go in to a NAPA or any good auto parts store they sell the same part as a brake bleeder repair kit so that you don't have to mail order them.

    get an easy out and a torch, lightly heat the area arond the bleeder and use easy out to turn them out. Take your time but it always works for us
