Default Bleed MC

Hey guys, anyone have some insight on the easiest way to bleed the MC?

found this on the 4th gen: http://forums.maxima.org/7788803-post8.html but they have more hard lines than ours.

I bought the complete rotorpros brake kit with hawk hps pads and ss lines a while back but they were/are leaking so i got a new set of goodridge ss lines so when i replace them, i want to bleed everything as braking is worse than stock.

TIA

You should not have to mess with the M/C at all unless you ran it dry. If you did run it dry, then you are going to need to "bench bleed" it. It can be done on the car, but it can also be done off the car.

Do a simple google search for "How to bench bleed a master cylinder" and you"ll get all kinds of instructions. AutoZone also sells a bench bleed kit to help you out.
