The dealership will do a brake system flush for ~$149. At least that's what I was quoted for the 4.8is. I'm sure an indy would be even less expensive. I did my last bleed myself when I removed the rear calipers but had no problems with the bleed. If I was to have the problems as some of you describe... the dealer would be a real option for me... and I hate to give the dealer money if I can avoid it.

Just a thought though, I know it doesn't help with the frustrations.

Master cylinder is on the front right of the car.

The ABS/DSC block is on the front left of the car (under the power steering reservoir).

Does this change the bleeding order?

Gotcha, but I'm not trying to save money here (I wouldn't have bought a 4.8L V8 in a country where fuel prices are pushing $1.53 AUD per LITRE). I want to be self sufficient here - I've tackled several more difficult jobs and this simple one has me by the balls!

The ABS needs recycling to open the valve using the proper software as the rears have most likely bled out. That's the issue I had many years ago when I fitted my BBK.

Understood. I didn't notice you were in Oz. Keep soldiering on and I wish you luck.

Hmmm, I hope that is not the case, I guess that means a trip to the dealer, trying to avoid that.

I don't believe the Master Cylinder ever went dry, so trying to wrap my head around how I'd have gotten air into the ABS pump..

Going to go through and bleed everything again tonight and see what happens.
Worst that can happen is I'm out another bottle of fluid I guess...

Ok if it didnít run dry then should be ok but just does sound like it when you have fluid going through no issues when bleeding but no pedal.

A good Indy could do it for cheaper Iíd have thought if you do have to go that route.

Why donít you guys jusr invest in a $20 Chinese diagnosis cable. It even comes with INPA. You just need a laptop to load it on.

Any suggestions/links on cables and software that have worked well for members?

Bleeding order is to start from the wheel that is furthest from the master cylinder and then the next furthest, etc.
