Normally, bleeding brakes is a 2 person job. 1 to press the brake pedal and 1 to open and close the brake nipple at the correct time.
We know that you don’t have any friends who can help and you don’t trust any of your family members to do anything technical. So what do you do?
This is a simple tool that replaces your technically incompetent family and makes the job fool-proof (assuming you understand how arrows work).
All you have to do is put the pipe onto the brake calliper bleed nipple, move the hose clamp into position so it doesn’t come off. Pay attention to the arrow on the tool, it should face away from the calliper. Put the other end of the hose into a sacriificial bottle.
Open the brake fluid tank and top it up. Open the calliper bleed nipple by a quarter turn. Now you just have to go and press the brake pedal a few times.
The metal part of the tool has a check valve that only allows fluid and air to pass in 1 direction so the old brake fluid (and any trapped air) pushes out into the bottle and doesn’t allow anything to flow back in.
It’s important to regularly check the brake fluid level in the tank. Never let it get low or you’ll introduce air into the top of the system. Keep topping it up as you bleed the old fluid out.
Once you have flushed through enough of the new fluid, tighten the bleed nipple and repeat with the other 3 brake callipers.
Clean the tool and dispose of the old brake fluid in a responsible manner.
