How to Bleed the Brakes on a Lexus LX470


Bleeding the brakes after a brake job is just as important as changing the brakes themselves. Other times you would need to bleed the brakes include when you service the master cylinder or replace a brake line. When you bleed the air out of the brake lines, you need to start at the point that is farthest away from the master cylinder. On the Lexus, start with the driver’s side, rear tire, then the rear passenger tire. The procedure is similar for bleeding the brakes on all Lexus models.
