Bleed my breaks

Anyone know the rotation on bleeding breaks, 1st-wheel, 2nd-wheel, 3rd-wheel, and 4th-wheel.undefined

There is a chart available that shows the recommended sequence for each vehicle because some of them vary but to tell you the truth, it's rarely causes a problem to do it differently. The most common way is to start with the closest to the master cylinder and end with the farthest. That is
LF
RF
LR
RR

Not to argue with Desi but I was taught the opposite, start from the farthest and end at the closest. Either way I usually go around a second time just to check and make sure no air is coming out.

Cars and manufacturers differ with their recommendations. It's usually not that important unless your having a problem.
I just happened to look up a Mercury Villager yesterday and it recommended front to rear but I know they all don't say that.
