Hi and thanks for reading.

I will be replacing the rear calipers on my 2002 C Class C220 CDi and will bleed the brakes after.
I have read in my Haynes manual that the order to bleed is RR, LR, RF, LF
I was always taught that you bleed the furthermost from the master cylinder first.
Being RF, I would have thought the order should be LR, RR, LF, RF.

Can someone please let me know which is correct... can anyone please help me? :(

If it's only rears would suggest left rear then right rear, job done.

I used Haynes to change all my brake fluid last year with no problems following their books advice . Brake fluid should be changed 2 yearly , if you are changing the callipers when was the fluid last changed ?
As above though , just bleed the rears if all fluid was replaced recently .

Thank you Wighty...
I only bought the car late last year so I am planning to bleed all and get some new brake fluid in the system as I have no idea when it was last done.
Thanks again.
