Re: Front brake line burst - things to look for.
Oh if you replace a line you will get air in the system. There are some tips to keep the amount of air that actually gets to the ABS unit to a minimum. On the control circuits you want to push fluid (syringe and hose) from the ABS bleed port up to the reservoir, rather than the other way around for a flush. This will minimize the amount of air introduced into the unit. Run the fluid down to the end of the hose before you put it on the bleed port.
The wheel circuits are a piece of cake. You start out with full reservoirs and you then push fluid out to the calipers with the pump. Just keep the reservoirs full and once you get some fluid at the caliper, you can use a long hose from there back to the reservoir and pump until the hose is free of bubbles.
