Manual Bleeding


  1. Remove reservoir filler caps and fill reservoir.
  3. If the calipers or wheel cylinders were overhauled, open all caliper and wheel cylinder bleed screws. Then close each bleed screw as fluid starts to drip from it. Top off master cylinder reservoir once more before proceeding.
  5. Attach one end of the bleed hose to the bleed screw and insert opposite end in glass container partially filled with brake fluid. Be sure the end of bleed hose is immersed in fluid.
  7. Open up the bleeder, then have a helper press down the brake pedal. Once the pedal is down, close the bleeder. Repeat bleeding until fluid stream is clear and free of bubbles. Then move to the next wheel.
