If you're doing it on your own, here are some tips. Run out to the hardware store and get a few feet of 1/4" clear hose. Get an old oil bottle quart and drill a hole in the top big enough to barely squeeze that hose through. Loosen the cap just a tad to let air escape. 1/4" clear hose will stretch over the bleeder screws, allowing you to loosen them, then pump the brakes without getting any air inside or making a mess anywhere. Here's what Terry did a long time ago, for reference. You can place the bottle somewhere so that you can either see it in the side mirror or look at it from the driver's seat.

To save yourself some potential headache, order a few bleeder screws from RockAuto.com before you start. One of mine was cross threaded from the factory and was unusable, and had to be replaced.
