Start with the wheel furthest from brake cylinder. In other words, back left, then back right, front left and finally front right.

Yes.

Passenger rear, Drivers rear, Passenger front, drivers front.

Don't go stupid either, you are bleeding brakes not trying to crack your master cylinder.

Check all the caliper slides too, and condition of the slide boots, piston dust boots, etc.

I removed the res from the master.....there is a little bolt underneath....8mm I think.....doesn't need to be done up tight either....it is a "shouldered" bolt.....so it doesn't actually clamp down on the res.....have a look with a little mirror-on-a-stick and you'll see what I mean.
