Time for my wife's car to get the brake lines vacuum bled. I used my diy vacuum liquid extractor for this job. The only other tools needed are a 10mm Spanner and a tire jack.

Just myself performed this job without having the engine on or removing wheels. This procedure took half hour to complete.

For her vehicle the order of bleeding is;

Step 1: The Rear Brakes.

I sprayed the bleed nipple with powerlube before loosening with the 10mm Spanner and attaching the suction tubing. With the vacuum extractor on I kept Topping up the brake reservoir with dot 3 fluid.

Step 2: The Front Brakes.

Same procedure with the front brakes. It is important to be observant of the fluid level in the reservoir. I used most of a liter to do the complete bleeding.

Step 3: Completion.

Here is the collected fluid which I properly disposed after. Finally I started the engine and pumped the brake pedal a dozen times then did a short test drive. The brake are far firmer and the vehicle stops much faster.
Any chance you can post the plans for the vacuum bleeder itself? My wife's van needs two new calipers soon and this could save me a ton of time.
