You are way off. The brake fluid will not drain out by gravity.
1. Remove the bleeder cap from the brake caliper, and connect a vinyl tube to the bleeder screw.
2. Place the other end of the vinyl tube in a clear container, and fill the container with fluid during air bleeding.
3. Working with two people, one should depress the brake pedal a few times and then depress and hold the pedal down.
4. While the brake pedal is being held down, the other person should loosen the bleeder screw using the SST, and bleed any fluid containing air bubbles. Once completed, tighten the bleeder screw.
5. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 until no air bubbles are seen.
6. Perform air bleeding as described in the above procedures for all brake calipers.
7. After air bleeding, inspect the following:
• Brake operation
• Fluid leakage
• Fluid level
