Otherwise make sure you have a 7mm wrench for the bleed ports on the calipers since it's not usually included in metric wrench sets. Just use the red wedge that the shop gave you to bleed the brakes.

Shimano Funnel Adaptor

Olive and barb tool
The funnel adapter link above is BAD. Also is it not included in the complete bleed kit?... Or it looks like the bleed kits have two separate funnels with different thread sizes obviating the need for the adapter?
