2. Loosen upper front brakeline. Have assistant slowly press brake pedal. While fluid is flowing and pedal is still being held, tighten brakeline. Have assistant slowly release brake pedal. Repeat this step until fluid flow is clear and free of air bubbles, then perform same procedure on upper rear brakeline at master cylinder.
