Nothing that wouldn't be advised for all cars.

AR42.10-P-0010-04SM Bleed Brake System Manually

During bleeding the brake fluid reservoir must be filled adequately at all times.

1 Open the right rear vent valve and bleed the brake system by pumping the brake pedal evenly and slowly. Then close the vent valve under pressure (pedal depressed).
2 Carry out the bleeding process at the left rear vent valve, right front vent valve and left front vent valve.
Observe correct sequence.
