First of all need to pump up the brakes about ten times have a assistant do this. Proceed to the rear of the vehicle. Around where the steel brake line goes into the brake housing there should be a rubber protective boot that is on top of the bleeder screw. Take off the protective boot if there is one. Make sure to have a flared wrench so you do not strip off the head of the bleeder screw. After pump up hold brake pedal with firm pressure as pedal is pressed down turn bleeder screw counterclockwise until fluid or air comes out. Make sure to check master cylinder for adequete fluid level and repeat until all air is out of the line.
