Car is a 2014 Audi A6

I'm chasing down a spongy pedal after replacing my brake lines, and I found some recommendations online to bleed the ABS pump. To get to the picture below, I selected:
03 - ABS Brakes
Basic Settings - 04
IDE03296 - Bleed brakes / Start routine / Go!

Where I'm struggling is reading the green text. I can't find a way to scroll through it to get all the instructions.

In case it helps, here are the available menu options in the pull-down window:

It seems we didn't anticipate needing to display a string quite that long. :eek:

I'd happily tell you what the string says if I knew where it came from, but I don't.

Bump this thread tomorrow if nobody else chimes in.

Chime in.
Code:
Step 0 > Release pedal > open bleeding screws FL and FR > if done switch to next step
Step 1 > Push pedal 10x > wait for next step
Step 2 > Push pedal 10x > wait for next step
Step 3 > Close bleeding screws FL and FR > if done switch to next step
Step 4 > Release pedal open bleeding screws RL and RR > wait for next step
Step 5 > Push pedal 10x > wait for next step
Step 6 > Close bleeding screws RL and RR > if done switch to next step
Step 7 > Partial bleeding routine is done > stop or restart routine

Thanks you very much!

Based on what you wrote and the options in the pull down menu, this is how I view the process:
Physical tasks
VCDS mouse clicks

Hook up power bleeder

Start routine / Go!
Step 0 > Release pedal > open bleeding screws FL and FR > if done switch to next step
Switch to step 1 / Go!
Step 1 > Push pedal 10x > wait for next step
Step 2 > Push pedal 10x > wait for next step
Step 3 > Close bleeding screws FL and FR > if done switch to next step

Switch step 4 / Go!
Step 4 > Release pedal open bleeding screws RL and RR > wait for next step
Step 5 > Push pedal 10x > wait for next step
Step 6 > Close bleeding screws RL and RR > if done switch to next step

Finalize routine / Go!

It seems that the pull down option Switch step 5 would never be used. Correct?

Well, now I know why I couldn't find that text. I searched for "Step0_Release". I missed the typo in it. :rolleyes:
