You put the other end of the hose hose on the bleeder valve on the caliper. Open the bleeder on the caliper and gently squeeze the bottle to force the fluid from the caliper up to the master cylinder. You use a turkey baster to suck off the DOT 3 as it fills the master. I know that I could buy a vacuum pump for $25-$35 but I would never use it again. Will this method work?
It will, and is the standard method used to bleed aircraft brakes. You do need to be sure that there are NO air bubbles in the fluid you are squirting in.
