Question about 2002 Toyota Camry
You need it running, so the power brake booster gets vacuum, and you have normal brake pedal feel.
Have one person in the car,slowly pressing the pedal,as the other person cracks open the bleeder valves, one at a time,closing them before your pedal reaches the floor.
You start at the right rear first,left rear,right front,then the left. Your working your way back to the master cylinder, from the farthest point.
Don't let the brake resevoir run dry or you have to start over. Your trying to get air out,not let it in.

Engine should be off.
Take off one wheel at a time.
Connect a Mity Vacuum pump to the bleed valve.
Start to pump.
The air bubbles can be seen wen the fluid flowing out.
Constantly check the level in the master container to fill in with the new brake fluid so air doesn't get in the master cylinder.
Keep pumping until the clear liquid come out without any air bubbles.
Repeat for all the wheels.

have someone pump the pedal and hold it, then you work from the right rear, left rear, right front, left front, while the person pumps and holds several times at each wheel.

ALWAYS START YOUR BLEED PROCESS AT THE WHEEL FARTHEST FROM THE MASTER CYLINDER, WHICH IN YOUR CASE IS THE RIGHT REAR, THEN THE LEFT REAR, FOLLOWED BY RIGHT FRONT AND THEN LEFT FRONT.

Here is the procedure from the service manual. I would add just one thing. Do each wheel in this order
HINT: If any work is done on the brake system or if air in the brake lines is suspected, bleed the air from the system.
NOTICE: Do not let brake fluid remain on a painted surface. Wash it off immediately.
a)FILL BRAKE RESERVOIR WITH BRAKE FLUID Fluid:SAE J1703 or FMVSS No. 116 DOT3
b)BLEED MASTER CYLINDER HINT: If the master cylinder has been disassembled or if the reservoir becomes empty, bleed the air from the master cylinder.
c)Disconnect the brake lines from the master cylinder. SST 09023-00100 Slowly depress the brake pedal and hold it.
Block off the outlet plug with your finger and release the brake pedal.
Repeat (b) and (c) 3 or 4 times.
BLEED BRAKE LINE
1. Connect the vinyl tube to the caliper or wheel cylinder bleeder plug.
2. Depress the brake pedal several times, then loosen the bleeder plug with the pedal held down.
3. At the point when fluid stops coming out, tighten the bleeder plug, then release the brake pedal. Torque: (Bleeder plug) Front brake caliper
: 8.3 Nm (85 kgf-cm, 74 inch lbs.) Rear wheel cylinder: 8.5 Nm (87 kgf-cm, 75 inch lbs.)
4. Repeat (b) and (c) until all the air in the fluid has been bled out.
5. Repeat the above procedure to bleed the air out of the brake line for each wheel.
CHECK FLUID LEVEL IN RESERVOIR Check the fluid level and add fluid if necessary. Fluid: SAE J1703 or FMVSS No. 116 DOT3
