Below starts with BMW 05 X5 E53 4.4i Dreaded ABS block "air bubble trap", finally Foxwell NT510 multi-system scanner bleed the air out of ABS block, go on reading for details.
Car model: BMW 05 X5 E53 4.4i with 90K on the clock
Symptoms and Issue:
Simply speaking, Dreaded ABS block "air bubble trap".
Description: at the beginning, 05 X5 E53 is no brake pedal. I Topped off the master cylinder (it was only slightly low) and tried to pump them up only to find that I had become yet another victim of the dreaded brake line blowout. - Ended up with a huge puddle under the driver side door and having to replace all of the lines that run down that side. I have that done, I of course can't get all of the air out of my ABS block.
Device to use:
I plan to use it to get into "bleed mode" and try to get the rest of the air out of my lines.
Finally, Foxwell NT510 scanner did it:
I get mine Foxwell NT510 scanner, get my ABS bled, which it worked perfectly for by the way and then get slammed at work.
this will be a solid diag and reset tool.
my local Dealership wanted $650 to bleed the air out of my ABS block after I ran my new lines and for $179 I was able to buy the Foxwell, set my ABS to bleed mode and save myself $450 - so all in all, I'm still saying it was a good investment for me in the end.
