Question Bleeding the Brakes: R56

I am going to finally going to install my SS brake lines. So I am going to flush, fill and bleed the brake as it is time for that.

So the Question: Does anyone have a procedure (tips and trick too) for brake bleed on an r56?

Thanks

I believe the ABS needs to be activated(by the diagnostic computer) to properly bleed the brakes.

Get a pressure blender like a motive. It will help a lot. You don't have to open the abs.

^This. Makes it a lot easier to do (especially since you don't have to have a second person) plus if you use Super Blue it'll be easier to tell when you're flowing new fluid at each brake. It's a really simple evolution.
