Three simple steps to a firm pedal
Add brake fluid to the Power Bleeder
Connect master cylinder and pressurize
Open bleed screw & purge old fluid & air
BEFORE YOU START - Before you start bleeding or flushing your brake system, remove the old brake fluid in your master cylinder reservoir with an old, clean, turkey baster or other suction type device and then replace it with fresh fluid. By doing this you'll be certain that the fluid entering the lines is fresh and you'll minimize the amount of new fluid you'll use in order to clean out the old fluid.
PORSCHE - Some Porsche models have vented master cylinder reservoirs. You will need to pinch the soft vent tube or plug the end BEFORE bleeding. Do not pinch hard lines & don't forget to unplug the line when done bleeding.
MERCEDES - Some Mercedes Models have two hard plastic vent nipples incorporated into the plastic master cylinder. You will need to plug these before bleeding. Just take a short piece of rubber fuel line and and some hose clamps. Put each end of the hose on one each of the nipples. Use the hose clamps to keep them in place. Don't forget to remove the byplass loop you've created when you're done bleeding.
CLUTCH - Some clutches have a separate fluid reservoir and are isolated from the braking system. If the reservoir mouth is the same diamter as the master cylinder then you will attach the Power Bleeder adapter directly to the to the clutch reservoir. If it is not the same size, you will need a different adapter to bleed the clutch.
Many other clutch systems share the same reservoir or have a slave reservoir off of the brake master cylinder reservoir. To bleed these clutches, you will connect the pressure bleeder to the master cylinder.
