    Bleeding brake fluid question.

    Upon fixing my car I had to remove the caliper assembly and drain the brake fluid on the driver front side, the thing I'm wondering is, do I have to drain the rest of the system as well? I think, dont quote me on this, but the brake line pattern is crossed between the wheel's so if I drained my front driver's I would only need to re bleed the rear passenger side. Help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure of the answer to that, but If you're going to bleed two wheels, you might as well take the time and bleed the other two just to be safe IMO. It'a a good opportunity to go buy some decent fluid and flush the whole lot.

    I wouldn't take any chances with the possibility of air in the system. As the designated order for bleeding is R front/ L rear /L front / R rear it doesn't make much sense to just do the last two without checking the first two are air-free.
