This ^^^ +1...


Here is some good brake bleeding info I found a wihle back.
Brake System Bleeding

Steps for bleeding GenCoupe brakes or any production based vehicle with single master cylinder
retrieved from MBS & here's the link: Brake System Bleeding

Supplies needed:
- 2 people
- Supply of high quality brake fluid from an unopened container
- Bleed bottle (I used suction from flush machine)
- 10mm hex box end or line wrench for bleed screws on calipers (2 per caliper)

With the car on jack stands and a person sitting in the driver seat:
(There are enough threads on jacking & supporting a car with jack stands etc..)
- Place the wrench over the bleed screw on the caliper furthest from the driver
- Place the bleed hose attached to the bleed bottle over the bleed nipple with the wrench. If the caliper has two bleed screws, start at the inboard bleeder first (ours do)
- Open the bleeder
- With the bleed screw open, have the "driver" slowly depress the brake pedal to the floor. With the driver holding the pedal down, gently close the bleed screw.With the bleeder closed, the driver can release the brake pedal
- Repeat this process until the fluid coming from the caliper is clear and free of air bubbles
- For calipers with 2 bleeders, repeat this process for the outboard bleeder
- Monitor the fluid level in the reservoir and refill as necessary during the process
- When finished torque bleeders to factory recommended settings

Repeat these steps for each caliper, working towards the caliper closest to the driver. At times it is helpful to tap the caliper body with a soft mallet to release any small air bubbles trapped inside the caliper. At this point, the brake pedal should be checked for firmness and consistency. If the fluid is free of air bubbles and the pedal is still soft or spongy, there may be further issues that need to be addressed with the brake system. When finished, fill the fluid reservoir to the "full" line, but not over

I suppose the engine should be running, otherwise the brake would eventually lock up?

so does the car have to be running to bleed the brakes? like the other guy asked? I mean I would assume no since once the bleeder valve/screw is open the brake pedal will not lock up right? can someone help me? im planning on bleeding my brakes this weekend thanks

No, there is no reason to have the engine running when you bleed your brakes.

So the pedal won't lock up? It'll be able to be pressed down while the valve is open?

Do you have the dreaded squeel at low speeds? Had to take mine off and save them for track days, just too damn embarrassing every time I stopped and they squeeled like a pig.

Low speed as in going from 15mph to full stop?

I have Stoptech pads and my front driver side squeals like a mofo when slow stopping.

I sometimes use the engine running when bleeding the brakes. But only the rears as the have the flow are restricted compared to the front. The newest Gen Coupes this is electrically controlled so I would assume it is fully open when the key is off?
