View Full Version : question on bleeding brakes

I had to replace the 2 frt calipers on my 00GAGT...

So that was fairly straight forward and then this is what I did next.

1.Open the bleeder a bit till fluid dripped out- closed bleeder
2.Hook up my mityvac kit to the bleeder screw and apply a vacumm.
3.Open bleeder till fluid was smooth and solid - closed bleeder
4. Top off MC
5. pump brakes
6. Re-open bleeder with mityvac still attached - making sure fluid was smooth and solid
and let it run for a bit...then closed bleeder.
7. Top off MC
8. Pump brakes

then test drove and it stops fine - no drop in MC fluid level.

My question is - did I do all of this right? Did I miss anything?

I am debating on still having a friend come over and help me bleed the brakes the old way, but if this works then I dont need to bother them.
