I just installed a new master cylinder in a 2003 Kia Spectra and need to know how do you bleed the brakes.:)

Do yourself a favor and buy a MightyVac or something similar. It is a small vacumn pump. You hook one end of the clear hose to the pump, and the other end fits over the the bleeder screw. You squeeze the trigger on the pump until you get about 20 on the vacumn guage, and then crack open the bleeder screw. It will draw the brake fluid from the master cylinder thru the line and out the caliper into a small resivoir on the pump. Repeat a couple of times until there are no air bubbles in the clear hose. Do each caliper and soon you will have brakes.:huh:
