    Bleeding brakes

    How many of you guys do this stuff at your home? I did mine today and was thankful the teacher was there since he reminded me I needed a scanner to activate the abs and get the crap out of there as well. I had of course already done the rears but low and behold it came out again with the abs activated. Curious how you guys do this because the only other way I can gander is you bleed it drive then re-do it to get the stuff out of the abs block if you don't activate the abs.

    I bled the entire brake system on our car to flush out the old fluid and remove air after installing a line lock. Used a Mity-Vac and it worked like a charm. No codes and no problems.

    I was quick about installing the line lock and the fittings are on top of the block, so must be that air did not enter the ABS pump. Haven't had an issue and the brakes feel great. Had I sucked air into the master cylinder then I may have had an issue. I would just do a four corner bleed starting at the back right wheel and work your way closer.

    Bro tip for anyone else interested if you can use a scanner to electronically open the abs do it.
