Hi all

Just wondering which side of the R33 brembo calipers to bleed first? The side without the brembo sticker on that faces inwards or the side with the sticker on that faces outwards through the alloy wheels.

I have these as an upgrade for my 200

if it was me I think I would bleed the inner one first, you generally bleed from the master cylinder outward.....

Inner then outer.
Someone pointed this out to me. You want to bleed from the furthest caliper to the nearest caliper. Then on the calipers with two nipples you want to go from furthest to nearest.

That should be outer then inner.

On the R35 part of the procedure actually says to get the calipers hot.

"Run the vehicle until the surface temperature of caliper reaches 70 to 80°C (158 to 176°F), and then perform the stops 1 to 8 with the caliper heated"

This loosens up any trapped air. You will find that air can get trapped around the pistons on multi piston calipers and sometimes needs to be massaged to come out.

I always start furthest away, but it might not be right.

Does it really matter?

You should always bleed a hydraulic system from source of power to application of power. AKA resevour to furthest away point of application (outside pistons of caliper).
