The One-Man Pump Method STEP 1 Lightly loosen your lug nuts and then use the jack to raise your vehicle. STEP 2 Remove the wheels. STEP 3 Locate the brake fluid reservoir under the hood and loosen the cover. STEP 4 Loosen each of the caliper “bleeder caps” using the vise grips. STEP 5 Place the plastic tubing over the bleeding cap and feet it into the bottom of the jar.
STEP 6 With the bleeder screw open, some fluid should already be pouring out, submerging the end of the tube. STEP 7 Pump the brakes several times, releasing the air bubbles. STEP 8 Replace the bleeder cap and remove the hose. STEP 9 Top the reservoir up with fresh fluid while discarding the fluid in the jar. STEP 10 Repeat for all tires, topping up the system with fresh fluid each time.
