Have a helper pump the brake pedal on the 2001 Jetta several times then hold it down. With the pedal down, loosen the bleeder valve at a wheel cylinder and let some fluid flow til the pedal goes to the floor. Close the valve and repeat until the fluid does not have any air coming out with it. Do the same thing at the three other wheels.

You have to remove the brake line making sure you have something to catch to fluid that will drain out. Plug to the line to prevent the system from draining completely. Remove/replace the brake line and refill the master cylinder reservoir and bleed the air from the system( if it is the hose at the caliper, you usually only need to bleed that wheel). If the reservoir drained completely you would have to run a ABS/bleed system test using a scan tool. After the air is all bleed out, recheck/top off the reservoir.

No, you do not. If you change the caliper, you will have to bleed that brake line. Have someone press on the brake pedal. Open the bleed valve, while they continue to hold the pedal. Close the valve. Repeat 3 times. We did it 4 times, but 3 should do it. Works great!
