Note however that this is generally a two-person job. The car should be on a lift, with one person in the car with the scan tool and operating the pedal, while the other one is opening and closing the bleeder valves as prompted. At least that's how it was done on earlier ABS systems.

    And as Jack states, you should definitely refer to proper repair manual for more details.

    Uwe,

    Thanks for the info and advice. Too bad that Bentley no longer publishes manuals for VWs otherwise I would look it up. I take my brakes very seriously and don't go off doing work without getting all of the pertinent information first.

    Thanks Uwe. I've read all the relevant literature in the repair manuals (RTFBs) and nothing new was found other than learning where to flush the slave cylinder. I will check out the Basic Settings in Group 001 to see what is offered in VCDS.

    I would avoid using a scan tool to bleed or flush the brakes. Pressure bleeding is the way to go. Early on at my VW dealer days, I was involved several times with trying to use the scan tool to bleed or flush brakes out and it a mess (figuratively). Then one day at the dealer, a crate shows up with a note stapled to it that read:

    Dear VW Dealer,

    You've just now spent $2000, congratulations!

    Love,

    VWoA
    And inside the crate was a pressure bleeding tool/kit, the VAS5234. This turned flushing ABS systems from a 2 confused as f##k people operation to a 1 person money making machine. We never went back to using a scan tool for this type of operation.

    To that end, you might want to invest in one of the Motive branded pressure bleeding kits. They are well under $100 and they do work. Brakes need to be flushed every 2 years and since I have several VWs, I have one of those kits for this reason.

    I find passive reverse bleeding and pushing at each bleeder, with a mighty vac to the reservoir, far cleaner and "obtainable for cost" & far easier as a one man job, than using the scanner or $2000 USD PSI bleeder.

    Hello,

    You know, we have a Ross-Tech wiki page for the ABS fault code 02214 - Tire Pressure Warning and it mentions the "System Rest" or also known as the "Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Reset". It looks like this ABS should support that reset in Basic Settings.

    Tire Pressure Monitoring System Reset

    You may want to try this AFTER you have verified all the afore mentioned components are 100% correct: Tires, wheels, bearings, sensors, etc and they are all functional, clean and/or correctly torqued.


    Hope this helps,

    drpeter
