Default 91 Accord Brake Bleeding Question

Hey all! I just replaced my brakes and I think i got air in the brake line. I was wondering if anyone knew the bleeding sequence for a 91 accord lx (no ABS). Any help is much appreciated!

The bleeding sequence is normally in order of the furthest from the master cylinder which be passenger rear first and driverís side front last. If you didnít open the hydraulic system when doing the brake job then you will not have air in the system from the job. You didnít post if you did rear shoes or front pads. If you did rear shoes you need to adjust the shoes with the self adjuster.

Thanks for your reply. I put on rear shoes, the brakes worked fine before i put the shoes on, my brake pedal goes to the floor and that's why I suspect its air in the line. I'll check the adjuster and see. If you have anymore information feel free to share

I am glad to help. The self adjusters are suppose adjust if needed every time you back up and hit the brakes but they donít work well. You can have the drums on to adjust and there should be a rubber plug at the top of the backing plate you remove and click the adjuster. I just did my 95 Accord and it was not easy even with a brake spoon. The other method is adjusting the shoes drum off and keeps trial fitting the drum. I run them tighter than most with just the drum on being a little hard to turn.
