When bleeding the brakes, note the following:
Do not reuse the drained fluidAlways use Genuine DOT 3 or DOT 4 Brake Fluid. Using a non-Genuine DOT3 or DOT 4 brake fluid can cause corrosion and decrease the life of the systemMake sure no dirt of other foreign matter is allowed to contaminate the brake fluidDo not spill brake fluid on the vehicle, it may damage the paint; if brake fluid does contact the paint, wash it off immediately with waterThe reservoir on the master cylinder must be at the MAX (upper) level mark at the start of bleeding procedure and checked after bleeding each brake caliper. Add fluid as required
- Make sure the brake fluid level in the master cylinder fluid reservoir is a the MAX (upper) level line.
- Have someone slowly pump the brake pedal several times, and then apply steady pressure
- Loosen the right-rear brake bleed screw to allow air to escape from the system. Then tighten the bleed screw securely
- Repeat the procedure for each wheel in the sequence shown below until air bubbles no longer appear in the fluid
Refill the master cylinder reservoir to the MAX (upper) level line
