How to Bleed your own brakes with a SPEED BLEEDER

Speed Bleeder® is the patented bleed screw (nipple) with the built-in check valve, it is truly a one-person bleeder screw. Once installed, it becomes a permanent part of the brake system. We have been selling them for several years and have received many positive comments.

To bleed your brakes, loosen the Speed Bleeder® ¼ - ½ turn and pump the brake pedal. When the pedal is depressed the pressure generated opens the check valve, letting air and brake fluid out of the end of the Speed Bleeder®. When you release the pedal and it returns to the up position, the check valve closes and prevents any air from re-entering the system through the Speed Bleeder®. When bubble-free fluid is evident you close the Speed Bleeder®.

In the closed position it works just like a standard bleed screw and prevents any brake fluid from leaking out. It generally takes about 5 pumps to purge each caliper or wheel cylinder. That is all there is to bleeding your brakes.

Sorry for the dumb question, but what do you benefit by doing this?

Wouldn't the fluid level get low after pumping it a few times?

How much are these things? Why not use a Motive bleeder?

Brakes are critical. Have a trained mechanic do all brake work if your not sure.!
Bleed , to open a small bleeder valve located on each brake caliper to remove trapped air in the brake system. Air will cause poor brake feel and spongy brakes ,because air is compressible.
Its usually done after replacing hoses or calipers.
I have also used the bleeders to flush the brake system.
Flushing every 2 years clears out all the old fluid contaminated with rust and water. Rust will kill your ABS motor and other expensive brake parts. Water will turn to steam under hard braking .
