NOTE
Follow pressure bleeder manufacturer's instructions for use of pressure bleeding equipment.

  1. Following the same wheel circuit sequence as prescribed for manual bleeding.
  2.  
  3. Attach Adapter, Special Tool 6921, to the master cylinder reservoir.
  4.  
  5. Attach Bleeder Tank, Special Tool C-3496-B, or an equivalent, to the adapter on the master cylinder.
  6.  
  7. Attach a clear plastic hose to the bleeder screw and feed the hose into a clear jar containing enough fresh brake fluid to submerge the end of the hose.
  8.  
  9. Open the bleeder screw at least one full turn or more to obtain a steady stream of brake fluid.
  10.  
  11. After approximately 4-8 ounces of fluid have been bled through the brake circuit and an air-free flow is maintained in the clear plastic hose and jar, close the bleeder screw.
  12.  
  13. Repeat this procedure at all the remaining bleeder screws.

  15. Check the brake pedal travel. If pedal travel is excessive or has not been improved, some air may still be trapped in the system. Re-bleed the brakes as necessary.
