You just bleed from the bottom up, the open reservoir up top will fill as you go. Just use another syringe to drain as you go until no more bubbles. Or you can fill from the top down, filling as it gets low.

You'll need m800/810 bleed blocks and you'll have to bleed the lever just like a new Shimano, except with the reservoir full instead of a cup filled with fluid.

After everything feels normal put the rubber reservoir back in, top cap on, clean, remove bleed blocks, clean, add pads..

Not sure if that helped, should be some info on YouTube. Bottom line is you can do it, but the proper bleed block helps, https://www.danscomp.com/shimano-saint-brm810-hydraulic-disc-brake-caliper-bleeding-spacer-y8ff19000/p876431

If the lever is just soft you can try filling the res on top and pressing the brake levers until all the bubbles stop, flicking the brake lines to get everything moving... That is what I'll do if the bikes been hanging and the lever gets a little more play than normal.
