Hi, I replaced a front caliper today and need a little help. I had a seized caliper and replaced it with a NAPA caliper that came compressed I am now ready to put the pressure to it but is there a bleeding procedure I should follow before I start? <p>I don't have a power bleeder.<p>Thanks<p>

Well since you don't have a power bleeder you will need a buddy to help you. Top off the brake fluid reservoir, get in the car and pump the brakes a few times then hold it to the floor while your buddy loosens the bleeder screw on the cailper. Repeat that a couple times per caliper until all air is out. <p>Proper procedure is to start farthest away from reservoir first. (RR, LR, RF, LF)

Re: Just replaced front caliper on 2000 S70 bleeding help needed (Howie)

For the fifty bucks it cost, the power bleeder was well worth it when I had to replace a caliper last month.<br>
