The process is not as straight forward as it sounds. If you check out the abs tools listed on this page take a minute to check availability and prices on the wheel sensors. Check fluid levels in both reservoirs frequently during the bleeding process to prevent air from entering the system. Loosen the line fitting and depress the brake pedal three quarters. When it became standardized it simplified diagnosis of check engine lights. It works for single and double flares also iso bubble flares.
Repeat until no air is seen and then bleed primary section with same technique. It is not ideal for stainless steel.

When this need arises, it will be essential you are prepared for the task. Electronic parking brake systems have created a need for a new specific tool for working on European and domestic late-model systems. For those interested, go to this link:.
