Hi,
Not that I know of but you should bleed the front and rear brakes in the correct sequence to fully get rid of all the air locks. I would also put the van on level ground.

Check with haynes, but i think it might be O/S/F, N/S/R, N/S/F, O/S/R for the bleed sequence. You could also try using a bleed tool such as the ones you connect to a spare tyre.

If after bleeding all 4 corners dont work, there must be a leak somewhere or something.

Careful with pressure bleeders - they may cause leaks at the master cyl reservoir
