Hi . Did you first bench bleed the master cylinder . What order did you bleed the brakes .correct way is as followed .LR,RF,RR then LF Some master cylinders have bleed screws ,did you bleed this . Then when you are done and still got air in the system then you need the scan tool to bleed the HCU hydraulic control unit . But most get it wrong due to the bleeding sequence..Then if needed please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.Your deposit does not pay me until the answer is rated in a positive way,A bad rating does not constitute a refund.If you are not happy or you have sorted out your problem before the answer then please let me know with the reply button .Kind regards Greg.
