hi

anyone had any experience of bleeding the brakes?

i drained the reservoir as low as i could without the risk of introducing air and filled up with fresh fluid. the right rear happily allows fluid to be pumped out, as does the front left. however, the front right and rear left (diagonals) don't pass so much as a dribble upon pumping the pedal or using a pressure bleeder.

am i missing something with regards to ABS setup or something? i know older non-abs cars had the brakes lined diagonally in case of line pressure failure - coincidence here that i'm having problems?

cheers

You said you didn't let any air in so as long as the fluid is flowing without air, tighten the bleeders up and give it a test run. You will know if the diagonals aren't engaging! The ABS pumps do weird things during static tests so don't panic. Once you apply the brakes, the ABS will do whatever it needs to to stop you. If it can't, you'll get an ABS nag light.
