Brake Bleeding


Any information would be appreciated with regards to bleeding the brakes on my 1997 Barchetta with Bosch ABS.
I intend to replace the flexible brake hoses and brake compensator valves on the car.
I always understood you start with the furthest away from the brake master cylinder, but this may not be the case with the barchetta.

Many thanks

Hi Phil. Search the forum for 'bleeding the brakes' This was discussed at length a while ago but I don't recall the question of which corner to start with, was answered.

.... gentlemen prefer red.

Re: Brake Bleeding

I have a late 1999 Barchetta and it has no rear brake compensator valves located up by the rear subframe / rear swingarms. Is this the same for all 1999-on B's?

If you have a 2000 + B can you take a look and let me know?
