Once you've finished bleeding, remove the power bleeder, being careful not to let the hose drip on your car's paint.

At this time your brake reservoir will be over-filled with brake fluid. It may actually spill over slightly when you remove the power bleeder. Wipe this up right away with a shop towel or rag.

You'll now want to remove the excess fluid with a suction device. A turkey baster can be used, as long as you make sure to never use it in the kitchen again!

Before you can insert the suction device, you'll need to lift out the screen in the fill neck of the brake fluid reservoir.

Remove just enough fluid to get it down just below the "MAX" line.
