Bleeding Sequence

Left front brake caliper Right front brake caliper Left rear brake caliper Right rear brake caliper Build pressure up in brake system by pumping brake pedal. Note Slowly depress the brake pedal to prevent the formation of bubbles. As soon as pressure is built up, hold brake pedal in depressed liition. Open the bleeder screw, with bleeder bottle hose connected, until the pressure is relieved (pedal drops). Hold pedal in completely depressed liition and close the bleeder screw. Release brake pedal and wait approximately 2 seconds so that brake fluid can flow out of the brake fluid reservoir. Repeat the procedure until the brake fluid flows out clear and free of bubbles. Tighten the bleeder screw, remove the bleeder hose and connect put the cap on the bleeder screw. Repeat the bleeding procedure in the specified sequence for the other brake calipers. Fill the brake fluid reservoir under consideration of brake pad wear up to the max marking and screw on the fuel cap. Start the engine and check the brake pedal travel and pressure. If the pedal travel is too long, check the brake system for leaks and repeat the bleeding procedure, if necessary.

Changing the brake fluid, refer to Maintenance Booklet 820 .
