Default Re: Replaced Caliper Need Help With Bleeding

The method in the video above is pretty good, but it would be better if you put a zip-tie on the bleeder to hold the tubing in place. Then you could press the brake pedal a lot harder to remover trapped air in the system better and ensure a good bleed.

I have a similar tool except I bought it years ago. It goes on the bleeder and has a plastic sleeve that pushes over the hose at the bleeder to hold it in place. The other end, instead of having a kinked tube, has a ball bearing on a spring blocking the exit. when pressure builds, the ball bearing moves to release fluid and air, and closes again when pressure stops to ensure no air enters back in. Basically the same principle as the kinked tube, but store bought.

I have used this method for years with great success.
