    DIS, (bundled with some diag leads) would do it, but you generally can get away with just normal bleeding etc unless the system has been ran totally dry.

    So you clamped a pipe, and it's not returning back to shape?
    I'd probably try BMW first for just the pipe needed, bleed through as normal, and you'll probably be alright.
    I can't remember anyone mentioning having to cycle the ABS, or rather noticing problems when not cycling it, but there used to be a few references to tracking down a gravel path to pull some skids on to check the ABS.

    Obviously you're going to want to be sensible with that, and not try 70-0 into a tree.

    no the pipe burst had to replace pipe but the master drained and it shuts down valves on the abs you need diagnostics to open valves to allow bleeding ... i thought about the gravel path idea but cant work out how lock the wheels with no brakes it would trigger off the traction but wont activate the abs unless the brakes applied and the sensors pick up speed increase ... well in my theory i could be wrong thou
