Can't do it by self unless you by a vacuum bleeder or gravity bleed

however, if you have ABS you may find yourself with a spongy pedal after either because you need a scan tool to bleed the ABS system

    Maybe my post wasn't clear enough...

    To bleed the brakes by YOURSELF you will need to buy a "one-man-bleeder" which is generic version of what we use in the garage as a vacuum bleeder

    The only other way is to gravity bleed
    To gravity bleed you open all the bleeders, remove the resirvor cap and wait....wait...wait... just make sure the master doesn't run out of fluid....typically you have to wait 3-4 hours before you get clear fluid out of all bleeders

Have a partner pump the brakes up and hold it.
Open the bleeder.
Make sure your partner does not let the pedal up until you reclose the bleeder.
Keep doing this at each bleeder until you do not see anymore bubbles coming out.

Auto Zone sells a small one man brake bleeder tool. I would check that the brake line is tight. Make sure that you have a washer on both sides of the line fitting.
