Re: Brake Bleeding Sequence (metalworker)

I think the standard advice is to start with the wheel farthest from the master cylinder (right rear) and work your way closer in (RR, LR, RF, LF). Hopefully someone with more experience will correct me if I am mistaken.

Re: Brake Bleeding Sequence (R Salesman)

FYI there are two bleeder screws per caliper, an inner and an outer. When I bled mine I went RR, LR, RF, LF. I also bled both inner and outer (can't remember which first), but the second screw only takes a second or two (you are only clearing out the old fluid in one half of the caliper).

Re: Brake Bleeding Sequence (JAGMAN)

The R has two separate systems. You can bleed either the front or rear first but start with the wheel farthest from the master cylinder. RR to LR or RF to LF. Also start with the inboard bleeder first then the out board bleeder.
