Question about 1996 Mercury Cougar XR7
There are to ways to blled your rear brakes first way is a gravity bleed take the top off the master cylinder fill it with brake fluid then open both bleeder screws on the rear once you get a flow of brake fluid coming out you can close them fill up the master and dont forget to pump your brakes before you start the car or you can have someone sit in the car and do the pump down method. Have that person pump the brakes until the pedal is hard tell them to push down on it you open the bleeder screw and the pedal will go to the floor and fluid will come out of the bleeder screw advise that person to not let the pedal go until you close the line once you close the line do it again til you get a straight flow of fluid coming out then repeat the same thing on the other side, Always start on the rear passenger side then the rear drivers side and keep an eye on the master cylinder you dont want to run it dry and when pump bleeding it the top should be on the master. Good luck
