Great blog entry on bleeding Camaro Calipers

It covers the standalone clutch reservoir as well.

The dry bleed method is interesting since when I used my motive bleeder on my 2002 SS and bled the entire system out I did the wet method. I will say trying to get everything cleaned up afterwards is more work than actually bleeding the brakes. I just might have to look into setting my bleeder up for easier use with the dry method.

Thanks for posting this link!!

I worked at Midas for years. I've seen and used every method known to man.

What I do to my personal car is what most can do with basic tools. I gravity bleed and then finish it off with a manual fluid flush.
