It doesn't come with instructions but that's okay because it's pretty self explanatory. But here's something's that I did that may help you. first attach to the helm then have the fluid bottle upright and attach the other end of the hose. then cut a hole in the bottom of the bottle to release air. then go able bleeding your system. but i found that once your done unscrew the bottle and put your finger on the hole at the end. Then unscrew it from the helm. this prevents the fluid from going every where.

        Poor Quality/High Price

            Comments about Seastar Fill Hose:

            I would expect an item that cost over $20 to perform like a $20 item. The screw on cap is made of less quality than the cap on the hydraulic fluid bottle. It leaked fluid during the whole fill process. You would be better off making this yourself.

              Unless you make your own, there's no alternative. It works. Price is obscene for a cheap plastic hose with plastic ends. Makes a mess when you disconnect.
