    Thread: Bleeding abs with Vag-Com?

    1. 04-17-2005 03:54 PM #1
      Ive done a seach and have not been able to find a specific answer. I bled my brakes with a motive power bleeder and now the pedal is soft. I know the master cylinder is go (pedal will hold) so i think air may be in the abs pump. I started the procedure for cycling the abs pump that is on the Ross tech website useing the basic settings but the instructions are not that clear that come up on the screen. It says to hold the pedal down part way then release. This causes the pump to come on momentarly. The next screen says to open the FR and FL bleeder screws. I assume it does not mean both at the same time, but should this be done with someone holding the pedal down or is the system holding pressure from the abs pump? Also, can this be done in conjucntion with the power bleeder. I checked my Bentley (non cd version) and it does not give any info about bleeding the abs. I think i am on the right track with my brake problem, after cycling the pump the pedal pressure improved. Has anyone gone through this process befor?
      This still leaves the question of how air got in using a power bleeder.

      That is what i had started with. I was hoping someone had done this before and could give some details on the exact process. When you go through the steps instructions come up on the vag-com screen that are not that clear. I want to make sure i get this right so i can rule out air in the abs as the cause of my brake problems. My Bentley manual (paper version) does not give any procedures for this. Before i drop the cash for the cd version can anyone confirm that it contains the information? Thanks,
