    Hi , I was wondering if anyone could tell me the sequence for bleeding the brakes on a 98 CR-V.
    I would normally use the old method furthest from the master cyl,but I have heard it has changed
    On vehicles with ABS.

    On the Accord it's clockwise starting from nearside front, but don't know about the CR-V, someone else might though....?

    Thanks for your reply, I have had this advice from other forums which were left hand drive vehicles, but wondered if it was the same for r/h vehicles, don't know if they change the master cyl from one side to the other, probably not? Sounds logical, will give it a try sat
    morning and let you know how I get on LF RF RR LR
    Cheers!

    Ah , the joys of car maintenance . The plan for the weekend was to change the front discs, pads and calipers,unfortunately we hit a few problems, couldn't get the front discs off as the screws that hold them in were completely rusted in. Ended up changing the calipers and pads, after that we were going to bleed the brakes as per the sequence in ichiban's post, unfortunately both rear bleed nipples were rusted and couldn't get them undone for fear of snapping them off, we ended up bleeding the front only, which seemed to work well. I think the trick is to make sure you clamp the brake hose before you disconnect the calipers, that way fluid loss is minimal. I will have another crack at when I get a chance ,but that might be a while as I'm tied up for the next few months.

    Cheers P.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Did you use an impact driver on the screws?

    Try an impact driver or just a steel punch to notch the screws and my tapping them they will budge. once they are off you can replace the screws with new one.

    Yes we did try an impact driver,not sure if I was using it properly,set it to anti clockwise and whacked it with a heavy hammer several times, tried it on other looser screws and it didn't seem to do much, maybe we need a better one.
    Will definitely try the steel punch
    Cheers p.
