Question about 1994 Dodge Caravan
To do it in a back yard the process is simple, but it requires two people.
first make sure the brake fluid reservoir is full, then locate the bleeder valve on the brake caliper, its not always required to take the tire off, but be prepared to remove the wheel. The bleeder valve looks the same as a grease fitting, or a brass nipple, its also likely covered in road grime and brake dust
the tools you need are likely a 3/8, 1/2, or 7/16 open end box end wrench, or just a small cresent, just make sure its tight arount the box part of the fitting so you dont mess it up, its made of brass.
ok, so one person is inside the vehicle and another is holding a wrench on the bleeder valve, once you have everything ready losen up the bleeder valve so its easy to turn. Have the person inside the vehicle pump up the brakes until they are hard and keep pressure on the brake pedal, then slowly turn the bleeder valve until fluid starts comming out, then tighten it back up, so you dont let air back in. then repeat as nessesary, then do it one more time just to make sure, then tighten the valve all the way, and repeat the process on the next wheel
be careful not to loosen the nipple too much or you could end up with fluid in your face or eye, which sucks, so take your time and dont get in a hurry, you are gonna lose some fluid through the process so dont fret about it just make sure you have enough fluid to compensate for the loss, also make sure the bleeder valve/ nipple is tight when you are done or you just undid everything you were working on, plus you wont have any brakes when you go to stop
