you have to get her to pump the pedal while the bleeder screw is tight ... then have her hold the brake pedal down and realease the bleeder screw for about 5 seconds .. then retighten the bleeder screw and have her pump them again and reapeat untill she feels the pedal is at a good spot .. Hope that helps .. <p>chadiator@hotmail.com</p><i></i>

Be sure to check the master cyl fluid reservoir each time<br>and keep it full-up on fluid.<br>If it gets any air in there, because of low fliud level,<br>you've got to redo them all over again. <p></p><i></i>

like chadiator said.<br><br>pump with bleeder closed about 5 times a wheel, while holding pedal to floor open bleeder.<br><br>make sure you have a hose with either a one way check valve, or a hose running to a container with the hose under the brake fluid level.<br><br>doing brakes right requires more then a few minutes.<br><br>always start with the wheel fartest away from the master cylinder.<br>do each wheel at least 2-3 times. or untill all old fluid and air gone<br>fill resivour offten<br><br>NEVER release brake peddle with bleeder open <p>MURR<br>1990 Suzuki Swift GT<br>TOY racer</p><i></i>
