    VCDS, ABS TEST/RESET ?

    hi all, can i check my abs is working with vcds? i dont want to bleed the brakes, just test the abs is working, ive all ready done a scan and no fault with abs, i changed the m/c last week and brakes are fine but not sure if the abs is cutting in as i nearly skided today when stoping quick, can i test/reset the abs with vcds without going all through bleeding them again? or jacking it up ? i just want to be sure the pumps working. thanks in advance

    If you nearly skidded you won't know if they work!

    ABS only kicks in when you lock a wheel so nearly skidding won't make it work!

    If the brakes work and are good then find a very quiet place like an empty car park get some speed up and anchor on you will soon know if they work or not
