Attach a rubber drain hose to the brake bleeder screw.
Submerge the free end of the hose in a container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
Have an assistant pump the brake pedal and then hold firm pressure on the brake pedal.
Loosen the brake bleeder screw until a stream of brake fluid comes out. Have an assistant maintain pressure on the brake pedal while tightening the brake bleeder screw.
Repeat until clear, bubble-free brake fluid flows into the jar.
Refill the brake master cylinder reservoir as necessary.
CAUTION: Make sure the bleeder screw cap is installed after bleeding the brake line(s). This will prevent corrosion to the bleeder screw. Failure to follow this instruction may result in the bleeder screw becoming seized.

Repeat the procedure for the remaining brake lines.
