I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Sorry for any delay you have had in getting a reply.

The SBC braking system needs to be bled out with a high pressure bleeding unit attached and also with the use of Mercedes STAR diagnostic system.

The SBC unit is a computerised "brake by wire" system and the only way to successfully bleed the system is by connecting it up in this way - STAR diagnostic tool actuates the SBC hydraulic unit to force the fluid through the system with a pressure bleeder attached.

You shouldnt have damaged the pump but I would strongly recommend having a Mercedes dealer or specialist complete this work.

Best regards, Paul
