2006 Hyundai Tiburon brake bleeding

there is no fluid coming out when im trying to bleed my brakes

Then you have a clogged bleeder. I am assuming there is another person pumping the brake pedal for you, right? If not, get someone to help. Some cars don’t gravity bleed well.

Try removing the bleeder entirely and see if any fluid comes out. Still no fluid? Suspect a failed brake hose.

Are you saying you are opening the right rear bleeder screw while a helper presses on the brake pedal and no brake fluid comes out? hmm … one idea …

If you have ABS brakes, there may be a need to connect up a scan tool to open and close the abs valves as part of the bleeding procedure. Before going down this path too far, ask at a dealership whether or not that is required. The bleeding sequence for the 2L engine equipped car seems to be right rear, left front, left rear, right front, if that’s of any help. .

Why are you bleeding the brakes? If it’s because you replaced a brake part like a caliper or the master cylinder, and you didn’t bench-bleed that part, you are going to get air for a long time until the fluid can work its way through the part.

You need a scan tool to bleed the brakes.
