I was bleeding my brakes over the weekend...when I got to the rear driver's side I discovered that the bleeder valve was broken off sometime in this car's past life. I put an ez-out to what was left of the valve, but now I see why they broke it off the first time. I don't see any hope of getting it out without removing that whole hub assembly from the axle so I can really get after it. However, there are no signs of fluid leaking from the broken valve, and after bleeding the other three brakes, everything seems to be functioning normally.

Anyway...my question is, is there a way to bleed that brake without the bleeder valve?

IIRC drum brakes $10 for the hydraulic part :brow:
