It's a complete pain in the ass... ok... are you familiar with the process at all? How have you been trying to do it? Which wheel is this?

Ok, here's how I used to do it. If you have the money to get it done, I would, but here goes...

You want your buddy to get in the car, have your hand/wrench on the bleeder valve. Have him pump the pedal a couple of times, and then put it to the floor and hold it. When he does that, you open the bleeder screw, and you'll get a mixture of fluid and air coming out. BEFORE he lets off the pedal, you must then tighten the bleeder valve so you don't suck the air right back in. You may have to do this MANY times to get it all out, like 5-10. I THINK on the Redlines, you should only have to do the wheel that you took off. Back in the day, you would have to do both sides of the front or rear.

I have never done it on the Redline in specific, or any newer car for that matter, but it should be the same process.

If he has been pumping on it with the valve open he most likely pulled in all kinds of air. But Sp00ner has the right steps. Have fun.
