XY brake bleed

hey, I have an XY with 4 wheel disc brakes, and it feels since yeaterday that I have almost no brakes at all WTF!?! before then it was fine, just curious what it may be, and if I should give the brakes a bleed. Also I'm not exactly sure how to bleed the brakes, so any help would be great.

thanks

Re: XY brake bleed

This should help, only really needed though if parts replaced or you managed to get air in your lines, check how brake pad is left and fluid in the resivior before starting anything.

Re: XY brake bleed

might be air in the lines, cause the front brake fluid was just about empty 2 weeks ago when I filled it up. but that was a while ago, didn't think it would happen now weeks after it was empty.....
