8th Gen Brake Flush Sequence

Postby mav-tek » Wed Sep 26, 2018 6:16 pm

Hello! New to the Nissan scene. Just bought a used 2017 Nissan Maxima Platinum. Coming from VWs all my life, first stop was to the forums to look for the DIY stickies to help me get a "fresh start" on my Maxima. I was surprised not to find many DIY step by step instructions. I'll try to contribute as much as I can.

Now to the question, looking at the service manual, it says "Bleed the air in the following order from the front (RH), front (LH), rear (RH), rear (LH)." Typically brakes are bled starting with the furthest brake from the master cylinder. Anyone know why Nissan does it opposite? I didn't get the most efficient flush.
