One M10 x 1mm thread bleeder valve is needed. US parts stores don't have them on their display racks. If you can find a computer savvy person at the parts store, they may be able to source one from a search, as they are common to European cars.

Locate the pig tail or bleeder extension, it usually resides around the rear shock, remove the dust cap, it's a hex head, insert the bleeder valve, closing and opening the valve will require an 11mm wrench. The rest is standard bleeding procedure.

As above, remove the screw from the bleed extension pipe , remove cable ties securing pipe , drop the extension pipe down away from paint work, behind this screw is a spring loaded ball , it can be done without a bleed nipple , just press the spring loaded ball and fluid / air will exit under pressure , if you pump the clutch lever ( three hands can help here..) obviously protect paint work and wear goggles , you don't want brake fluid in your eyes / on skin.
