Re: Purging brake electrovalves.

MOT passed okay. The brakes surpassed readings ok.
There is still air in there though. I have bled four calipers again tonight. Will take it out tomorrow.

There is air coming out of rear nearside nipple with pressure bleeder. The manual speaks of centre brake circuit needing bled as well as 4 calipers. The only centre circuit I can see is where the 2 pipes have a straight coupling joining them together under car. They are joined just about rear of centre.

Whether that is there as a bleeding option I don't know. It seems strange to have the pipes joined when it is common to have them full length unbroken.
According to Renault procedure it seems to take a few go's and faffing with 2 men to get it right. That is obviously on the ramp with containers on all calipers and pressure bleeder as well.
