Range Rover Evoque: Brake System - General Information

Brake System Bleeding

CAUTION: Brake fluid will damage paint finished surfaces. If spilled, immediately remove the fluid and clean the area with water.

NOTES:

Bleeding of the complete brake system must be carried out using Land Rover approved diagnostic equipment. Where only the primary or secondary brake circuits have been disturbed in isolation, it should only be necessary to bleed that circuit. Partial bleeding of the hydraulic system is only permissible if a brake tube or hose has been disconnected with only minimal loss of fluid.

Some variation in the illustrations may occur, but the essential information is always correct.

All vehicles

1. WARNING: Make sure to support the vehicle with axle stands. Raise and support the vehicle.

2. Check that the brake fluid lines are secure and that there are no signs of a brake fluid leak. If a brake fluid leak is detected, investigate and rectify the cause of the leak before bleeding the brakes.

3. Pump the brake pedal until the brake vacuum assistance is exhausted.

11. CAUTION: The brake fluid reservoir must remain full with new, clean brake fluid at all times during bleeding. With assistance, depress the brake pedal steadily through its full stroke and allow it to return to the rest position. Repeat the procedure until brake fluid, clean and air-free flows into the bleed jar.

12. When brake fluid, clean and air-free flows into the bleed jar, depress and hold the brake pedal down.

13. CAUTION: Make sure the bleed screw cap is installed after bleeding. This will prevent corrosion to the bleed screw. With the brake pedal fully depressed, tighten the bleed screw.

Torque:

Front bleed screw 8 Nm
Rear bleed screw 11 Nm

14. CAUTION: LH illustration shown, RH is similar. Fill the brake fluid reservoir to the MAX mark.

15. WARNING: Braking efficiency may be seriously impaired if an incorrect bleed sequence is used. Repeat the brake bleeding procedure for each brake caliper, following the above sequence.

16. Apply the brakes and check for leaks.

4. With assistance, depress the brake pedal steadily through to 2/3 of its full stroke.

5. With the brake pedal held down, close bleed screw and then return the brake pedal to 1/3 of its full stroke and hold.

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5, 28 times for the rear brake and 10 times for the front brake.

7. At the end of the bleed process, depress and hold the brake pedal down.

8. CAUTION: Make sure the bleed screw cap is installed after bleeding. This will prevent corrosion to the bleed screw. With the brake pedal fully depressed, tighten the bleed screw.

Principles of Operation

For information on the description and operation of the system, refer to the relevant section of the workshop manual.

Inspection and Verification

WARNING: Before carrying out a road test, make sure the vehicle is safe to do so. Failure to follow this instruction may result in personal injury.

CAUTION: Diagnosis by substitution from a donor vehicle is NOT acceptable. Substitution of control modules does not guarantee confirmation of a fault and may also cause additional faults in the vehicle being checked and/or the donor vehicle.

NOTE: Check and rectify basic faults before beginning diagnostic routines involving pinpoint tests.

1. Verify the customer concern.

2. Visually inspect for obvious mechanical faults.

Visual inspection

3. If an obvious cause for an observed or reported concern is found, correct the cause (if possible) before proceeding to the next step.

4. Use the approved diagnostic system or a scan tool to retrieve any diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) before moving onto the symptom chart.
