As we were driving from California to New Mexico ,the brakes started to not respond on the second pumping of pedal .Must be air in the system we said in unison! so 60 miles before our destination in Taos MM we decided to bleed the lines on the side of the road to free them from potential air bubbles . my wife was pressing on brakes as I was opening the bleeder valve in the back wheels and closing it when she lifted the pedal. the juice ran clear for a while and then stopped running altogether!!! both rear wheels !!! the break fluid reservoir was always filled up to prevent any new bubbles from getting in the system since the back brakes where now not spitting fluid ..we moved on the front passenger brakes which stopped spitting also ....only the one on driver side . we drove the next 60 miles on with the hand brake glued to my right hand !!!!and made it ! that was before running through a red light in espanola!!! what a day !!! Now safely parked in mother s in law driveway !!! trying to figure out what to do next before driving down to Mexico . any suggestions anybody? Thanks a million in advance
