I was replacing the front struts in my 2000 and accidentally removed the brake line bolt, cause fluid to leak out (not the bleeder valve, but the bolt).
Completely stupid, I know.
After finishing the job, my brakes are spongy. I added more fluid, but that didn't do it. So, two things:
1) This is an air in the brake line issue now, isn't it? I need to bleed the lines.
2) If there was liquid pouring out of the line, how did air get inside? It would have been leaking for just a couple seconds and was immediately reattached. Is that long enough for air to invade the system?
Obviously I'm still learning with this stuff, so any input is appreciated.
