    All that's for is bleeding the ABS module after completly emptying the system. You need to fix that broken nipple, no electronic aid is going to get the air out of a broken MC

    I know it can be done, what i'm saying, unless you've drained the system right out it won't bleed any better than the manual method. Give it a try, nothing to lose

    What we are all trying to tell you, is using the VDCS method will have no difference in bleeding than doing it manually. If the nipple is broken, fix it. Then bleed however you like
