1992 190E rear brake problems

A couple weeks ago I posted a question concerning problems getting the rear brakes to work on the above listed car. Come to find out that with normal bleeding (mashing brake pedal with bleeder open, releasing, etc) that you have to remove the rear calipers because the bleed port is below where the hose comes in. Seems to prevent you from being able to bleed air out without turning the caliper over. Now that my friend did this he has rear brakes again. Using a power bleed and pushing fluid towards the master cylinder would have prevented this.
