Bleed gun assy – mk5 actuator

Description

Brake maintenance just got easier with the AL-KO IQ7 Hydraulic Bleed Gun. This tool allows for simple and efficient brake fluid replacement to ensure optimal brake performance.

To use, fill the reservoir with clean brake fluid just below the top of the sight glass. The pressure bleed gun socket is then placed over the reservoir’s neck, applying gentle pressure. Once the socket is secure, you can place the other end of the bleed gun tube into a bottle or container of fresh brake fluid.

Start by opening the bleed screw at the furthermost calliper, placing a clear flexible hose over the bleed screw, and immersing the other end into a partially filled container of brake fluid. Squeeze the pressure bleed gun repeatedly, ensuring the brake fluid tanks don’t run dry, which would introduce air into the hydraulic system.

The process is repeated with each calliper, from furthermost to closest to the actuator. After connecting the trailer to the tow vehicle and turning on the ignition to activate the actuator, apply the brakes repeatedly to allow the fluid to circulate properly.

Check the brake fluid level in the reservoir — it should not exceed the sight glass maximum level. The final step is to replace the fluid reservoir cap.

With the AL-KO IQ7 Hydraulic Bleed Gun, brake fluid replacement is a smooth, hassle-free process. Enhance your vehicle maintenance with this tool today.

Bleeding instructions using Sensabrake Pressure Bleed Gun

1. Fill the reservoir with clean brake fluid to just below the top of the sight glass.
2. Place the pressure bleed gun socket gently over the neck of the reservoir applying gentle pressure to locate the bleed socket place.
3. Screw the lid in place to secure the socket.
4. Do not push on with excessive force or damage may be caused to the reservoir or the 0 ring on the pressure bleed gun socket.
5. Place the other end of the bleed gun tube into a bottle or container of fresh, new brake fluid.
6. Open the bleed screw (start with the furthermost calliper) at least one full turn. Place a clear flexible hose over the bleed screw and immerse the other end into a container partially filled with brake fluid.
7. Squeeze the pressure bleed gun repeatedly (but not too fast or cavitations may occur) ensuring that the bulk brake fluid tank and the reservoir do not run out of brake fluid or air will enter the hydraulic system. At no stage let the fluid level in the reservoir fall below the minimum fluid level indicator.
8. Continue squeezing the pressure bleed gun until the brake fluid in the flexible hose attached to the bleed screw is free of air bubbles and tighten the bleed screw.
9. Repeat the process with the next furthermost calliper away from the actuator.
10. Bleed the other side of the trailer starting with the closest calliper to the actuator first as above
11. Connect the trailer to the tow vehicle and turn on the ignition to activate the actuator. Allow the compressor to fully charge the actuator (approx 90 seconds). Once the compressor has stopped apply the brakes, and hold on for a 5-second period and release. Repeat this 4 times.
12. Check the brake fluid level in the reservoir. It should not exceed the top of the sight glass maximum level.
13. Replace the fluid reservoir cap.
