Brake bleeding sequence
« on: September 22, 2022, 06:27:23 PM »
Hello readers!

There appears to be differing opinions on the sequence for bleeding brakes - some say start at the further point from the brake cyclinder i.e. the rear passenger side, others say start at the front passenger side.
Does it matter?

Advice will be gratefully received.

Welcome to the forum.  :D

According to the manual:

    Start the bleeding at the driver's side of the front brake system.
    NOTE: Bleed the calipers or the wheel cylinders in the sequence shown.

Welcome, Tim. If you start bleeding nearest the Master cylinder then any air at the Master cylinder has the shortest route to get expelled. If you start at the rear you have to push it all that way to get it out.
