Thumbs down

your car has a "criss-cross" brake system; on none ABS brakes, the bleeding is done in the following way:
1st right rear, then left front, then left rear, then right front.

this thread hasn't moved in a bit, so i'm gonna hijack it a little. My rear, driver's side rubber brake line has a crack and needs to be replaced. I have a 2004 elantra gt with ABS.

I was hoping to do this myself, but the webtech site indicates the use of the hi-scan gizmo. Can i bleed these the old fashion way or should i not do it?

many thanks,
clayton

No you can't. The ABS is in the circuit, and the pump needs to be switched on for proper bleeding, and this can only be done with the “Hi-scan”.

Sigh.

Overzealous technology superscedes normalcy again.

I don't get it, brake fluid is STILL going to flow regardless of ABS, so why is anything electronic necessary?

this is true, in spite of what 'the book' says you can bleed the brakes in the normal way, this applies to almost all makes and models with abs

ok, so who's right here? It makes sense that you could bleed them the normal way, but it also makes sense that if there's an ABS pump that gets air trapped in it, the air might not be able to be expelled unless the pump is running (ie: with a "hi-scan" tool)

hmmm,
