Hello,

Bleeding brakes on any vehicle is pretty straight forward. Ensure that your vehicle's brake fluid reservoir is filled up properly and have a helper press and hold the brakes down. On each caliper there should be a bleeder valve that you need to crack open. There should be straight brake fluid coming out. If there is air in the lines it will push out. If your helper presses the brake pedal all the way to the floor, tighten the bleeder valve, and have him take his foot off of the brake and then again push on the brake pedal and hold. repeat opening the bleeder valve until solid brake fluid is coming out. Tighten the bleeder valve and that brake line is now bled. Here is a link below to a guide explaining the process in more detail:
