    its located directly on your calipers. its probably either an 8mm or 10mm. Bleed as follows: Right rear, left rear, right front, left front. Get a pedal man that can follow directions. get the pedal high and hard, then direct the pedalman to hold the brake pedal, then open the bleeder, watch the stream, if the stream is steady and theres no bubbles that caliper is good, close the bleeder and make sure the pedal man still has his foot to the floor. when the bleed is closed tell him to pump it again and go onto the next caliper. unless you removed a caliper, or you have a really mushy pedal there really is no need to bleed your brakes jus for the hell of it.

    You have to take the wheels off to bleed them. The bleeder valve is on the top of the caliper, towards the back side of it. You will need a 10mm wrench.
