Default Brake bleeding procedure

i replaced both front flex hoses on my 03 V6 vue. i am using a piece of tubing on bleeder that drops into a catch can. i opened driver side bleeder and the pedal moves to floor with minimal effort. fluid comes out of tube.
went to pass side. pedal is very hard and goes to floor slowly
i loosened banjo bolt and fluid is dripping out.
tightened bolt and now the pedal seems to drop normally?
pass side rotor felt hot when i removed hose. and i think bearing is noisy
i had same issue with bleeding on my equinox last month.
pass side seemed to fight me. i put new hose on equinox
vue seems to brake evenly today going to work
though the bearing is probably due for replacement
oh, i lifted front of vue and let both tires spin in gear and pass side is much slower? huh?
i do feel a rumble when i hold the coil spring. darn bearing is 3yrs old. cheap chinese part

Bearings are usually not a great place to save money on cheap parts.

I know for a fact vue is rolling easier. I replaced knuckle and bearing last time. Maybe bearing will come out with little effort. Since it does not have 13yrs of salt spray.

...Timken is your friend for wheel bearings, also if bleeding brakes, crack open the furthest bleeder from the MC, using you method ,keep pressing pedal till ALL bubbles are gone in tube , make sure MC is temp overfilled for this, rears 1st, then fronts, this should firm things up, having a friend pump the brakes is even better, hope this helps, DC

Any idea why pass front would not bleed with new hose? I changed hose for same issue last month on my equinox. I think there may have been crud in the caliper/bled port. Did bearing tonight also.

...possibly rust or crud from previous flex brakeline, like you stated. Maybe open bleeder more and have someone pump pedal, if no better take bleeder off and let it drain for a bit ,gravity drain, make sure res. is full, DC

If you think that the bleeder is blocked remove it and clean it with small drill bits. You should be able to blow air through it if it is not blocked.
