    Tap the caliper at the bottom while bleeding. Air bubbles collect at sharp internal bends... tapping shakes them free.

    Don’t laugh...

    I do that as well. A couple of semi-gentle technical taps with a rubber mallet.

    I use the plastic end of a large-ish T-handle.

    Kinda like a plastic icepick.

    Seems like the more I learn, the more I realize I need to learn. Probably need to get a shop manual for the mustang.

    My past experience with repair manuals has been mixed. Some have better details than others. Some cover one topic better than another.

    Any recommendations from those of you who have repair manuals? Get it from Ford dealership or somewhere else?

    A searchable pdf shop manual would be awesome! Where can I get it?

    I saw you mention you could get a shop manual in PDF. Any chance you'd share where? And it would be for a 2018 GT non-PP
