    how to bleed brake fluid

    I accidently unscrewed the wrong bolt which leaked out brake fluid, which now I need to bleed out the brake lines and get the air out. I've looked at a few ways that recommend taking off all 4 tires, but is there an easier way? Any response would help. thanks.

    Unless you have a lift you will have to remove the tires. Either all at once or one at a time. If you have never bled brakes before I highly suggest taking it to a professional.
