Cool

Hard to believe no one answered this for you yet. First of all make sure your master cylinder is full of brake fluid,(you'll find it under the floor about 10" forward of the seat under a rubber plug). Start at the left front wheel and find the bleeder screw (I believe right next to the brake line where it enters the backing plate) and have someone pump up the brakes 4 or 5 times and hold the pedal down while you open the bleeder.(close the bleeder before the other person releasews the brake pedal) Repeat this until you get a steady stream of fluid out the bleeder with no air. Next repeat these steps at the right front wheel then the left rear, then the right rear. Hope this helps some.
