useful even though I'm not changing my pads and rotors yet, I will be installing some SS lines so the bleeding the brakes part will def come in handy!

Although it was never answer, but I dont believe its necessary to bleed brakes with just changing pads and rotors.. unless your upgrading fluid

The ratcheting wrench was a good fit, makes the most of the limited space.

On my Motive Power Bleeder, I used the universal adpater. Held the pressure at 10 PSI. I would pump it up to 15 when I started each one, it would go down to 10 slowly and stay put. I didnt want to monkey around with the fitment of the adapter and was making progress so I just left it.

I ended up bleeding the entire system. I put 2 qts of brake fluid in the power bleeder to start. I figure the extra time it would take was worth it.

Motive sells sport drink style bottles with about 12" of hose and a thin braided steel lanyard for hanging off the suspension. Very handy.
I just spent 2 days trying to get the rear bottom caliper mounting bolt off. It was a B!T$H!!!!
Couldn't fit a breaker bar. Tried hammering the ratchet and even extending the ratchet with the jack handle and hitting that with the hammer.
I put the tires back on and decided I would pay someone. I was dousing the bolt with penetrant in between.

Searched and read a couple 350z and G35 diy so I decided to give it one more try. Once again the ratchet with jack handle extension did not work. Here is what did:

1.) Penetrating oil again. Closed end wrench. Whacked the closed end wrench hard with the jack handle

The jack handle seems is heavier than the hammer I was using.

Summary:

Penetrant. Closed end wrench. Big Jack Handle or BFH.

Bleeding Brake System AFS000U0

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

2. Connect a vinyl tube to the rear left air bleeder.

3. Fully depress brake pedal 4 to 5 times.

4. With the brake pedal depressed, loosen the air bleeder to let the air out, and then tighten it immediately.

5. Repeat steps 3, 4 until no more air comes out.

6. Tighten the air bleeder to the specified torque.

7. In steps 2 to 6 below, with the master cylinder reservoir tank filled at least half way, bleed air from the front right, rear right, and front left tires, in that order.
Just in case anyone runs across this thread again, the steps above are from the 2003 FSM. The 2004.5 FSM has a different order:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
2. Connect a vinyl tube to the rear right bleed valve.
3. Fully depress brake pedal 4 to 5 times.
4. With the brake pedal depressed, loosen the bleed valve to let the air out, and then tighten it immediately.
5. Repeat steps 3, 4 until no more air comes out.
6. Tighten the bleed valve to the specified torque. Refer to BR-25, "Components" ,BR-31, "Component" ,BR-
38, "Components" ,BR-44, "Components" .
7. In steps 2 to 6 below, with the master cylinder reservoir tank filled at least half way, bleed air from the front
left, rear left, and front right tires, in that order.

Great write ups and new to the site. But after a full caliper, rotor, and pad change out here are some hints.

lower bot on rear caliper use jack to lift suspension and it will get you a better angle for impact.

to get rotors off easily go to you tube

Still trying to get rid of sponginess after 2nd bleeding attempt

Good luck.
