    5525 turn brake problem

    I hope this is the right place for this question? We have a 2005 5525 John Deere tractor that when it comes up to temperature the right turn brake gets very soft, and you basically feel like you need to pump the break to get it to turn. It does not feel just right even when cold. The left turn brake feels normal and doesn't seem to be giving any trouble. Any ideas on what might be the culprit would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks for any help.

    I thank there is a bleeder on top of each side. Try that first. Then rig up a gauge and test each side.

    I agree bleed the brakes, bleeder is a top inboard axle housing.

    I tried to figure out how to edit the post above. And finally gave up. Thanks for the suggestions. Somewhere on the internet I read that these were self bleeding brakes. That turns out not to be the case the bleeder was exactly where you said it would be bled the brakes now they work as good as when the tractor was new. Thanks again for the help.
