  • There will be a specific order, usually farthest first, nearest last, but do check. – Solar Mike Jun 22 '19 at 4:56
  • You need to bleed at all four corners, starting from the corner furthest away hydraulically. – Huesmann Jun 24 '19 at 13:52
  • if one brake line have burst you need to take a look on the other brake lines and look for cracks and wear and change the bad ones if needed. – trond hansen Mar 18 at 6:33

Once it's together, you need to bleed the entire system, as air could have entered and affect the braking ability of the vehicle. Since it's a 2006, if you're like most people, the brake fluid has never been changed in it anyway. Doing a complete flush and bleeding at all four is not going to hurt anything. Get yourself a quart of DOT4 and have at it.
