I just finished bleeding my brakes as described - no problems. I didn't follow the sequence, didn't know about it, but it can't be 'that' important. Interestingly, while I was also replacing pads and rotors (FYI, I did not put the torx screw back in since I had to drill them out) I had a look at the piston cylinder since I hadn't changed the brake fluid in the 165k km that are now on the odometer. In view of past discussions here of dire consequences if brake fluid isn't changed regularly, I expect signs of some rust etc. Nothing
, chrome surface was beautiful and shiny.
sooo, take that all of you who need to change fluids (and spark plugs
