Thread: Brake fluid flush on AST cars

  1. #1

    Default Brake fluid flush on AST cars

    The Bentley presents the AST cars as impossible to flush by the owner. Is this true?
    I have flushed my E28 and E30 in the past with no issues ( but no AST either ).
    I use the BavAuto branded pump to do the services.
    The E34 net site makes no mention of AST vs. non-AST...

    Default Thats ASC and ASC+T not ast , you can bleed them normally as long as

    you haven't replaced and components upstream of the asc controller.. in other words if its a normal flush its not a problem

    Default

    or you can single handedly bleed them with a pressure bleeder, make sure you dont suck air or you will have an all day project.
