    Replacing bleeder screw

    Ok, so I had to go to Napa because I went to re-bleed my brakes, but in the process, the first screw got reamed off. I got it tight enough to hold fluid, but it will bother me until it's out and replaced.

    My question is... should I just gravity bleed all 4 sides and get completely rid of all the fluid in the system while i'm at it since I guess the whole thing will have to be re-bled now anyway.

    Please advise on how to do this.

    I've in the past just replaced one bleeder and bled only that side. I think that's what you're asking.

    I was going to do a flush, but if I only need to do that side, that's cool too.
