Brake Flush Question

I've read threads and watched videos and feel confident in doing a full brake fluid flush, but there's one thing nobody mentions (unless I missed it).

I plan to replace the stock bleeders with Speed Bleeders. Will brake fluid come out when the stock bleeder is removed, or does fluid only come out if the brake pedal is pressed while the bleeder screw is loosened or out?

It seems to me some fluid must come out if the bleeder is removed. If that's the case, how much and how hard? Spray, trickle, gush, or somewhere in between? Just want to be prepared so as not to have fluid everywhere.

Thanks in advance.

Hold down the brake pedal + open bleeder = the squirts

No pedal pressure, it'll dribble out (gravity. Brilliant!). Enough to make the surrounding caliper area messy, but slow enough that you can take the bleeder out and put in your speed bleeder.

Hose down with brake cleaner afterwards, done.

Just be careful holding down the brake pedal. Itís different than other vehicles, in that there is a pump that will activate and continue to bleed the system, including pumping the reservoir dry, which reportedly is a big problem. But it makes it easier if youíre careful. Easy, but a coordinated two person job.

As stated it should only dribble/ooze out fluid....BUT if you have a stuck caliper it could squirt out until the pressure ie released.

I would put a piece of plywood or double up some cardboard to keep any that dribbles out from staining your driveway, and as stated use brake cleaner to cleanup the cailper/s.

What size speed bleeders did you get? Or do you have a link to the ones you bought? I'm going to be replacing my calipers and would like to put speed bleeders on while I do it.

Top is front, bottom is rear. Haven’t installed them yet.
