    Another job looms!
    Couple of questions about bleeding the brakes:
    First, I have vacuum bleed tool which connects to each calliper in turn (one or two bleed nipples) and sucks fluid/air through, is this ok to use instead of the type that pressurises the system from the reservoir end? (works on a Porsche 964 C4!)
    Second is this likely to throw up any error codes?

    Thanks

    It might not work on its own..

    I believe you might have to set the abs module / pump into a neutral or a bleed state for it to work with VCDS or similar.

    I leave it to my specialist...
