In Reply to: Bentley's says do NOT bleed brakes by yourself? posted by John Feng on October 26, 2000 at 17:59:02:

Than only abs and has an additional pump and electronics that let it automatically apply the brake to 1 or more wheels to enhance traction. I would have it bled at someplace with an actuator. its not like simple abs. I wouldn't hesitate to tell you to bleed regular abs.

I recall the Bentley's manual saying that
if you have ABS and AST, then you should
NOT attempt to bleed the brakes yourself.

Anyone know why this is so and who has done
it successfully despite this warning?
