Question about 2001 Ford Excursion
Always start with the brake furthest from the master cylinder. You will also need an assistant for ten minutes. Put a cloth ready to catch any drips. Starting with the most distant brake caliper undo the bleed screw half a turn and put your finger gently on the end of it. Have your helper press on the brake. Your finger end will feel the fluid and any air bubbles coming out. While the brake pedal is depressed re-tighten the bleed screw gently but keep your finger on the end all the while. Only now is your helper allowed to release the brake pedal. Again have the pedal pressed and again gently undo the bleed screw to allow fluid (with bubbles) out. Follow the above until no air bubbles are felt in the fluid. A quarter of a cup is to be expected. Check the level of fluid in the reservoir and top up. Move to the next most distant caliper and repeat the process. Corner by corner work your way back towards the master cylinder. Your helper will notice a point in the process where the brake pedal suddenly hardens under pressure as the last of the air bubbles is removed.
