Yea, that comment about having the bleeder on the bottom being OK is a little strange....

If your brake line goes in at the top of the caliper you may be able to bleed it there but it isn't optimal.

Are you sure the problem is trapped air and not something else? Are the rear brakes drum brakes? If so, are they adjusted so the shoes don't have a lot of movement?

You could try an alternate bleeding method (I'm assuming you don't have access to a pressure bleeder or vacuum bleeder). Put a piece of clean tubing on the bleeder fitting and submerge the other end in a container with brake fluid in it. Open the bleeder fitting and slowly push the brake pedal to the floor and slowly release it. Do this a few times. For this to work the threads on the bleeder need to be reasonable air tight.
