How to bleed the Brake fluid on a 2006 Mustang GT

Hello,
I would like to know how do you bleed the brake fluid on a 2006 Mustang ?
I used to do it on a 1966 Mustang : unscrew the farest screw of the wheel cylinder/caliper from the master cylinder then push gently the brake pedal after screw/close the bleeder release the brake pedal and go on on the four wheels.
Thank you.

It's the same now as it was in 1966. You can also do what I do and use a 'one-man' bleeding system.

You don't need anyone to pump the pedal with these.

Does it bleed the entire system, including the slave cylinder?

Its what the techs at our shop use for bleeding. Unless doing a brake system flush we have a machine for that.

I was planning on getting the speed bleeders myself.

Funny you should mention that. That is exactly the step I am on in my project, bleeding the slave cylinder. I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to get a wrench on the bleeder valve.

How could it bleed the entire system?

I don't fully understand how that will work either.

Can you really bleed all the system like old days (just pushing the brake pedal) ?
Do you need to do something special ?
Is there anybody who does this ?
Thanks
