thats what i figured..the dealer is super beat for telling me that shit. So the right way to bleed them would be dsf psf than rr lr. Do i gotta any secondary pumping or something or flushing?

From what I have seen done on my 2002 TL-S when I had my front rotors and pads installed is... I can't remember. Damn, I thought I had it. Sorry guys.

It's easier to seek forgiveness than permission.

NO crash, farthest one first, cause u need to bleed the system and pump the air out at the same time, so it would be rr, rl, fr, fl.

yeah theforeignkid is right. You start with the back first to insure no air gets into the system.

Even if you dont have a friend or a buddy to help you can try just a gravity bleed where you start RR, LR, FR, FL one at a time open the bleeder let it drip untill there is a solid stream of fluid close that bleeder and go on in order to the next one doing the same thing. but make sure befor you start to bleed be sure you have enough brake fluid in there so you dont run out of fluid? just suggestion!

Yeah thats a very good point. You have to make sure you have enough brake fluid in the master cylinder, or else air will get into the brake lines.
