brake bleeding question - July 16, 2008, 08:48 PM

So I tried bleeding my front brakes today on my '00 r6. I was going by the work manual and when I was done I gave it all the once over and noticed that there was a bleed screw on the other side on the other rotor as well. So I guess my question is does it matter which side bleed screw you use to bleed the brakes? or do you need to do both of them? Also my brake lever feel a little softer now and I'm not sure if it's because my hand slowly got used to squeezing it so many freaking times when bleeding it or if something's not right?

You need to do both...then after every thing is filled and tightened down make sure to pump up the brakes

Do both. I do about 4-5 times on one, switch over to the other, then back, then back, until it feels nice and all the air is out.




feel free to take any connotation of that statement.

Feel free to service the master too. (for more connotations )

+1 for both calipers. Check the master cylinder to see if there is a bleeder on it too. If so, you know what to do. Soft feel at the lever means air is still in the system somewhere.
