Talking Only one bleeder bottle

As long as you have some good needle nose pliers a pair of vise grips and a few screw drivers you are good yes there are some special tools that make it easier but not needed.

Ok you do need two cans of brake clean spray maybe three cans and some kind of brake bleeder system all I used is 2 or 3 feet of tube that fit the bleeder good and tight from an auto parts store and a 20 oz. coke bottle.

If you don’t have the service manual get one from the first page of the forum free.


My bleeder looks like this start with about 2 inches of brake fluid in the bottle it acts like an anti-siphon valve and make sure the tube is submerged in the fluid a small hole on top helps also as a breather hole not on this pic.
