Factory instructions say that the bleeding is done via Star Diagnosis computer by activating the suspension struts in cycles (s.c. rodeo cycle). Also, if there are stored fault codes, the suspesion might be locked in last safe position. To get the lock off, fault code must be erased with Star Diagnosis, or it might be possible that disconnecting battery's ground cable for 30 minutes might also help. The system might also get bled out by lifting and lowering the vehicle 10-20 times in a row.
Let me know how i can help more.
