Brake Bleeding after BBK

Can anyone describe how to do it? Or is there a DIY somewhere that would help? Thanks!

break wheel bolts
put car on jack stands
remove wheels

pressurize system with brake fluid in brake bleeder reservoir
start at passenger rear brake caliper
bleed until the new fluid comes out (use diff color fluid than current fluid)
go to driver rear - do same
go to passenger front - do same
go to driver front - do same

i go through each wheel again.

remember, the BBK calipers have 2 bleeder valves, so don't forget one.

great and straight to the point. I have another question on bleeding the system. I have a 6mt and wanted to know when I should bleed the clutch. After the front driver side wheel? Thanks.

Yes!

You should bleed the clutch after the brakes. NOTE: It takes quite a few more 'turns' to open the clutch bleed valve than the brakes though.
