    proper way to bleed brakes I believe it to start with caliper closest to brake booster and work your way to furthest away.

    The overload proportional valve's (or load sensing valve) bleeder screw is completely rusted seized which means that if I mess with it I am going to have to buy a new one from Toyota for $240 plus new brake lines,can I bleed the system withouth messing with that overload proportional valve?.Thanks.

    Start with the caliper farthest from the master.
    Open bleeder and depress pedal, close bleeder and release pedal. Do this untill al air air is gone from the line. Do to all corners of the car, make sure not to drain the master dry or you will have to start over.
    Try to depress pedal smooth and fairly slow.
