Brake bleeding DIY?

Any DIY's on this?

Even if it's really simple, it would very reassuring to have some idea what I'm doing.

The order in which to bleed is to start from the wheel farthest from the master cylinder then working your way towards it.

RR, LR, RF, LR


Is that what you needed or.. more?

Dumb question: is bleeding the same thing as flush?

In that case, here's a flush DIY:

No, but they're related. Flush means you replace all or nearly all of the fluid, bleeding just means getting the air bubbles out (and probably adding some more fluid as a consequence). You do have to bleed in a flush though, so that DIY should be fine.

From the sounds of it, you're probably off paying a professional to do it.

^good point. Honestly the easiest thing to do is just get a buddy at the track to show you once and then you'll be competent for the next time. If you don't know anybody at the track just approach someone, in my experience people are always eager to help each other work on cars as long as it's not a lot of work.
