Speed Bleeders, which ever brand you choose are the best thing since, well, disc brakes. Remove your old bleeders, screw these in, crack them loose, and pump the brakes. Keep your master from going empty so you don't allow air in the system and that's it. By far the easiest, fastest, and best way I've every found to bleed your brake system completely every time! Make your life easier and put these on every car you own!

I tried putting these on my 99 Ford F150 and they wouldn't screw all the way in. If you compare them side by side with a stock screw, they are too long. In order to use these bleeders, you need to grind/file off part of the end points on the speedbleeders. The pointed end doesn't allow you to bottom out into the caliper/wheel cylinder. if you don't do that, you'll be losing fluid left and right.

    Comments about Dorman - Help Brake Bleeder Screws - Speed Bleeders - 3/8-24 X 1-3/16 In.:

    Every car and truck should come with theses things standard.

    I can finally bleed my brakes by myself. I've tried other methods but always ended up with a mess and waiting on someone to come home so they could pump the brakes while I operated the bleeders.

    Now it's just hook up the tubing, crack the bleeder open 1/4 turn and pump the brakes about 5 times. Then close the bleeder, refill the resevior and move on to the next one.

          the hardest part is not the new bleeder itself, getting the old rusty bleeder fitting out without breaking it, soaking it with w40 or other penetrating product before is a good practice. using a brake fitting wrench or 5 point wrench is a great help. then just screw in new bleeder, loosen it, press pedal till the air is out, tighten fitting and your done.

            Speed bleeders should come on every vehicle from the factory. They make what is often a very difficult job into a quick and almost enjoyable task. No more having to try and get your assistant to follow your directions. And no expensive power bleeder to buy. I've put these bleeders on every vehicle I've every had to bleed the brakes on. Worth every penny!
            Had to buy these by thread size as my vehicle application wasn't listed online. Needs improvement in this department.
