Question about Cars & Trucks
Most cars are done the same way:
1: Farthest brake from the master cylinder (rear)2: Opposite side from the first brake.3: Farthest from the master cylinder on the front.4: Remaining brake.
BTW: I would advice using the traditional method of using a clear bottle with some fluid in the bottom and a clear hose running out of the fluid, through the bottle top and which can connect to the bleed nipple. When bleeding fluid, make sure the fluid in both the master cylinder and to the bottle is clean before closing off the bleed nipple. Then pump the brake after bleeding each brake and feel for any softness. If you feel softness after bleeding any particular brake, then you will know that you just introduced air into that brake line, and will need to bleed again.NEVER allow your master cylinder to become totally empty whilst bleeding as this will mean you have to bleed all air out of the total system and start again from scratch. This can be a huge pain!

should be a bleeder screw on each caliper, unless, they were broken off in a previous attempt? They have to be there

Follow the next procedure for SYSTEM BLEEDING...
Front brake circuits should be bled using pressure bleeding equipment. The pressure bleeder must be of the diaphragm type and must have a rubber diaphragm between the air supply and brake fluid.
CAUTION Do not move vehicle until a firm brake pedal is achieved. Failure to obtain firm brake pedal may result in personal injury and/or property damage
Front Brake Circuit
Rear Brake Circuit
Also, I suggest check this procedure for Bleeding Brake System...
The purpose of bleeding the brakes is to expel air trapped in the hydraulic system. The system must be bled whenever the pedal feels spongy, indicating that compressible air has entered the system. It must also be bled whenever the system has been opened or repaired. You will need an assistant for this procedure.
Never reuse brake fluid which has been bled from the brake system. Brake fluid should be changed every few years. It deteriotates due to moisture being absorbed which lowers the boiling point.
Old brake fluid is often the cause of spongy brakes returning a week or so after bleeding the system. If all parts are OK, change the fluid by repeated bleeding.
1. Raise and support the vehicle securely. Your assistant should remain in the vehicle to apply the brake pedal when needed.
2. The sequence for bleeding is right rear, left front, left rear and right front. If the car has power brakes, bleed the vacuum by applying the brakes several times. Do not run the engine while bleeding the brakes.
3. Clean all the bleeder screws. You may want to give each one a shot of penetrating solvent to loosen it up. Seizure is a common problem with bleeder screws. They can break off, usually requiring replacement of the part to which they are attached.

4. Fill the master cylinder with DOT 3 brake fluid.
Brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air. Don't leave the master cylinder or the fluid container uncovered any longer than necessary. Be careful handling the fluid, it eats paint.
Check the level of the fluid often when bleeding, and refill the reservoirs as necessary. Don't let them run dry, or you will have to repeat the process.
5. Attach a length of clear vinyl tubing to the bleeder screw on the wheel cylinder. Insert the other end of the tube into a clear, clean jar half filled with brake fluid.
6. Have your assistant slowly depress the brake pedal. As this is done, open the bleeder screw 1 / 3 - 1 / 2 of a turn and allow the fluid to run through the tube. Close the bleeder screw before the pedal reaches the end of its travel. Have your assistant slowly release the pedal. Repeat this process until no air bubbles appear in the expelled fluid.
7. Repeat the procedure on the other brakes, checking the level of fluid in the master cylinder reservoir often.
After you're done, there should be no sponginess in the brake pedal. If there is, either there is still air in the line, (in which case the process should be repeated) or there is a leak somewhere, (which of course must be corrected before the car is moved).
8. Lower the vehicle.
Hope this helps.

always start with the back passenger wheel, then back drivers wheel, then front passenger, last front drivers wheel, there should be a bleeder valve on each caliper, probably a 3/8 or 5/16 open end wrench, have someone pump the brakes up tight and hold it, turn the bleeder valve open until the pedal goes to the floor and retighten before they let the pedal go or it will **** air back in, continue doing this until you get a stream of fluid, no bubbles should be in the fluid, dont forget to keep adding a little bit of brake fluid every so often during bleeding
