Question about 1999 Buick LeSabre
Same as a clutch. Get a couple bottles of dot3 fluid, a small crescent wrench and someone else's leg. Take off cap to reservoir and fill if needed. Have other person pump the brake pedal and then hold to the floor. You open the bleeder nipple (on brake assembly) until it stops dripping/squirting. Close bleeder. Fill reservoir if needed. Repeat 3 times. Do other side same way. Put cap back on reservoir. Drive and test.

start bleeding your brakes from the rear wheels and work your way to the front. I'm assuming you already did a pad change since you say you got the air out. make sure you keep the fluid level and not let it get too low while you're bleeding them or air will get into the master cylinder and you have to start all over again. Make sure you have someone help you that is competent enough to hold the brake pedal down all the way and not let off even the slightest bit until you get the bleeder screw tightened.

I don't know if this works on a Buick but I have had two cars that the auto adjusters worked when you used the parking brake, I rarely use the parking brake so I got in the habit of working the parking brake 20 times or so at oil change time.

SOURCE: How do you bleed brakes
(see Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6)
CAUTION Never reuse brake fluid which has been bled from the brake system. Brake fluid should be changed every few years. It wears out due to moisture being absorbed, which lowers the boiling point.
Old brake fluid is often the cause of spongy brakes returning a week or so after bleeding the system. If all parts check good. Change the fluid by repeated bleeding.
Fig. 1: To bleed the rear brakes, remove the cap from the wheel cylinder bleeder screw (see arrow)
Fig. 2: Attach a hose to the bleeder valve with the other end submerged in a container of clean brake fluid
Fig. 3: If necessary, you can remove the bleeder valve from the wheel cylinder by unscrewing it
Fig. 4: There are special bleeder wrenches available, that make bleeding the brakes easier
Fig. 5: To bleed the front brakes, remove the protective cap covering the bleeder valve/screw
Fig. 6: Attach the brake bleeder line, with the other end submerged in a container full of clean brake fluid, then open the valve
