Correct Brake Bleeding Order

What the hell is it?

Dmitry's DIY site says front left, front right, rear left, rear right.

Searching Saabnet someone said from the WIS for a Viggen it is: Left-front, Right-rear, Right-front, Left-rear

Does it matter? Which one is it? Is it different for a NG900 (what Dmitry's write up is on) vs. Viggen. T5 vs. T7?

I'll be replacing the brake lines so it's a full fluid swap, not just bleeding each corner.

When I did my SS lines, I did it in the WIS order (F-L, R-R, F-R, L-R) with my Motive Power Bleeder. No issues whatsoever. I have a 99 9-3, and that was the order WIS instructed.

last time i did my 900, i did rear right, rear left, front right, front left.

HOWEVER, because each wheel is basically it's own system within the ABS, i do not think it really matters

i'd go with the WIS

I follow Castor's belief. I have done it both ways and had no issues with a power bleeder. I suppose if you were doing a gravity bleed, or actually pushing the pedal, it might be more important to follow a specific order.

Non-ABS cars I've always started with the longest line and ended with the shortest line.

WIS sez....................for 1999 and 2000 all 9-3 models
Front left
Right rear
Front right
Rear left

The tool you are supposed to use looks like a vacuum operated bleeder.

Yellow in front, red in back.

The combo works great!

However the SS lines I just put on leak so they don't work so great right now.

Can I put Teflon tape on the threads or what? The nut that I think it's leaking from is on good n' tight.

Not happy.
