1999 Yaris / Echo - rear drum bleeder screw access?

Repaired the brake lines on the wife's yaris, however having issues getting a hose and a wrench on the drum bleeder screws as they are fitted at an angle and struggling to get an air tight seal whilst being able to turn the wrench

Any tips?

I used to bleed the brakes without a hose on the bleeder bolt. Messy but doable. Perhaps you could cover the bolt with a rag which would absorb most of the brake fluid.

Somehow I dont think this advice will be taken.

More unpalatable examples of advice I have given: you can own a low flush toilet without the trouble and expense of installing a new one. Just flush only when brown.
