    Question Brake Bleed Order 2.0T FSI Quattro

    Hi All,
    First post here as I have recently picked up a 2.0T FSI Quattro, 2005.

    The brakes are soft, so probably need a bleed. Does anyone know the bleed order?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    The idea on all cars is to start from the caliper furthest away from the brake fluid reservoir and work your way to the closest point. Eg.. Nearside rear, then offside rear, then nearside front and then offside front.

    Thanks for the replies.
    When I say bleed order, I mean the order in which the brakes needs to be bled.

    I know the general rule for most cars is for furthest first working towards nearest, but I believe the order is slightly different on these. I have heard that the system works diagonally and you must start with nearest to the master cylinder followed by furthest.

    Does anyone have a maintenance guide or manual for this model?

    Thanks
    Tim
