    Default Bleeding abs brakes on a 406 coupe(brembo big brakes)

    is bleeding abs brakes as straight ahead as standard types.?

    I've never done it on abs brakes before but have done it on my old 205,504,405

    i just want to flush the system through with new fluid ,the pedal is a bit spongy (not a great deal) and a bleed fixed it on my last vehicles.
    money is very tight atm so I'm gonna have a go myself.

    Basically the same. You're "supposed" to cycle the abs unit using pp2000 after you bleed as normal.
    if you don't drain it, and only push new fluid through, then you should be fine. I've done it that way a bunch of times.

    I agree with Speaksgeek.

    Just bleed them as per normal.

    Just to expand on my previous answer (was using phone).
    There is a process to cycle and bleed the ABS pump using PP2000 software. It's important to use if you let the brakes empty out, and introduce air in the pump.
    If you just bleed by pushing new fluid after the old fluid (the traditional way), then you shouldn't need to do this. If you get any air into the lines, then you will need the computer.
