Yes so if you decide to use syringe empty out reservoir with a rag or whatever but dont get fluid all over any painted bits. Start from furthest caliper and put 10mm wrench on, apply clear tubing on nipple which will be connected to syringe. Have about 20 inches of length. I believe 120ml syringe or bigger is what you will want. Pull piston out of syringe and slowly fill with fluid allowing it to fill up tube and syringe. Once filled add piston back to syringe and crack open nipple and very slowly push fluid through. Do not force it as the pressure can blow off the tubing from nipple. If your syringe is large enough you will push fluid up to reservoir. You can always top off syringe. This will push all air towards top and then you can try to bleed again if needed but air bubbles will be in top of system where they naturally want to go.

Hope this helps and you only need to do it from one location. This is what has worked for me in past but most times my vacuum bleeders does the job!

First thing I would do is try your new vacuum bleeder and see if you are getting any air bubbles.. If so try syringe method.

Keep using the zip tie method once your done.
