Brake bleeding is usually done for one of two reasons; either to replace old brake fluid as part of routine maintenance or to expel trapped air in the system that resulted from opening the brake hydraulic system during repairs.
Brake system bleeding can be done with a pressure bleeder, a vacuum bleeder or manually. Pressure bleeding is recommended as the most efficient method.
When bleeding the brakes, start at the wheel farthest from the master cylinder and progress in the following order:
• Right rear brake
• Right front brake
