Bleeding Master Cylinder

I've done a search, and can't come up with the info I need.
The car is a '92 201, 2.3 ltr, automatic.
I just flushed the brake system using a Motive power bleeder - what a great tool!

I started by removing the fluid from the reservoir. I then removed the reservoir and cleaned it with brake fluid. I then proceded to flush the system from each caliper - one at a time.
I didn't relace any brake parts, I was just flushing the system. Now the brakes are very soft.

I'm assuming air got into the M/C. Is there a way to bleed it without taking it off the car?

And for future reference, is there a way to remove the reservoir without introducing air to the M/C?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I Would RE bleed the brakes...

Start at the R/R then L/R then R/F then L/F Keep the system full so you dont get air back in the system

Mark,

Thanks for the input.

I did exactly what you describe. I guess I'll keep working at it.
