Purging brake electrovalves.

Has anyone done this on high spec Renaults?
I have done a full rear brake rebuild on a Vel Satis 3.5.

I had to cut brake pipes at flexi hose and bubble flare the pipes. I kept master cylinder full at all times with ign off. I have air in system. I will bleed a few times more. Apart from spongy pedal I have a sign on dash that tells me to put foot on brake. When I do so the sign goes out and returns when foot off.
If needs be and I have to purge brake circuit, I am wondering if anyone has done this with Clip clone? Perhaps on a top Laguna?

I have no desire to put it to main dealer. They didn't even know what the car was last time I was in!
