Are you having someone press and hold the brake pedal down as you open the bleeder valve?

to figure if you have a clog or not tighten the bleeder valve and pump and see if you feel some pressure build up. If so your just doing the steps wrong. are you using self bleeder or two people?

I know that is what many think, but the correct way on FRONT WHEEL DRIVE cars is the opposite

yea we figured out that guy is an idiot already. Obviously the abs carries brake fluid since brake lines go to the ABS module.

Now that said its always the furthest first, so it would be RR then RL then FR then FL.

Sorry to bump old thread, but didn't want to start a new one.

What's the plastic tubing used for?

I want to COMPLETELY flush out the brake fluid. How many bottles do I need?

Would it make sense to flush the first line (FL) completely until a whole new reservoir of brake fluid is used, and THEN proceed to the other lines?

Thanks.

The tubing is so you're not squirting fluid all over the place. It can be corrosive. Use a ratcheting 10mm wrench, slip the tubing onto the bleeder nipple and place the end into a bottle, then slide the wrench over that .Also, NJK20 is correct on the bleeding order for a front wheel drive car. FL, FR, RL, RR. I just did it last week.

The tubing is to catch the brake fluid that comes out of the bleeder screw, its also helpful in determining if the brake fluid is still dirty because you can see the color of the fluid that comes out. It can also help you see if you still got air bubbles coming out of the bleeder screw.

To loosen the bleeder screw, you'll need to use a 8mm wrench iirc.

you can't do a complete flush you need the honda tool to flush the abs module if im correct, probably 2-3 bottles should be plenty. You dont ever let the master get empty or near empty.

Most important thing. if air gets in your screwed and will start all over. Then you can go through alot of bottles.

Air gets in when someone releases the brake pedal with the bleeder screw loose?

not if you have your tube from the bleeder valve in a cup of brake fluid. so instead of sucking air when the pedal is released it actually will suck up brake fluid.

i know this is old, but figured i post my recent fluid change. I am guessing it was time?




In for comments. Besides "way to go for reviving an old thread". I figured this was better than starting a new one?

Was saying that because brake fluid is hygroscopic, holds water. Should be bled ever 2yrs. Higher temp should be used if you boil dot 3-4.
