Unless UrQ's are different from all other cars in the universe (insert
pithy statement here), one should bleed the caliper the furtherest
distance from the master cylinder. Normally that is the right rear,
followed by the left rear (opposite for right-hand drive cars), then the
passenger front, and finally the driver's side front. Hope this helps.
