You will need a helper to bleed the brakes. Starting from the furthest wheel from the master cylender, locate the bleeder (on the back side of the backing plate on the wheel cylender). I would recommend that you spray the bleeder with a penetrating oil so it doesn't break.
Next, have your helper pump the brakes 7 times and on the last one hold pressure on the pedal. At this point, open the bleeder so the fluid comes out and any air. Close the bleeder as soon as your helper says the pedal hits the floor. Do this at least three times or until all air is out of the system and nothing but fluid comes out.
NOTE: TELL YOUR HELPER THAT WHEN THE PEDAL GOES TO THE FLOOR, NOT TO RELEASE IT UNTIL YOU HAVE TIGHTENED THE BLEEDER. IF HE LETS GO BEFORE YOU TIGHTEN IT, IT WILL SUCK AIR BACK INTO THE SYSTEM.
Continue this process until you have gone through all 4 wheels. Also, work from farthest to closest to the master cylender.
I hope this helps.
PS:Keep in mind you will need to refill the master cylender while doing this and when you are done.
