Bleeding Brakes-First Timer Needs Advice...

Recommended Posts

I want to bleed and replace all the brake fluid on my new-to-me '02 LS 430 tomorrow, as the stuff in there is pretty dark and may be factory original at 85K. I have access to a Snap-On vacuum brake bleeder that attaches to the bleeder screws and sucks out the old stuff, then draws in the new stuff when you add it at the reservoir. Sounds simple? I've heard that you should start at the caliper furthest from the reservoir and work back, and to take care not to break off any corroded bleeder screws. Any other advice/warnings/cautions/gotchas I should be aware of? How about recommended brake fluid?

Thanks in advance, and...
