Re: Master Brake Cylinder bleed
The way I look at these things is that it must be dead simple or the production line would grind to a halt waiting for cars to be started up and have their brakes bled.
On my 155 (maybe subtly different system) I bled the wheels one at a time, furthest first (o/s/r, n/s/r, o/s/f, n/s/f) with the engine off and that came up lovely.
I had the whole system apart (apart from the ABS unit and the rigid pipes) and it used about 700ml of fluid to bleed the whole lot.
It took me another go, after a few days driving about, to convert the pedal from "okay" to "sorted". The calipers will tend to direct air to the area around the bleed screws.
A "pressure bleed" system should sort it.
No bullets for Chaingun..
