Re: escape rear brakes
You Sir are a jammy B*55*r. Even Mr Haynes says "NEVER bleed ABS with the ignition on" let alone engine running. The bleeding order has changed too. Modern cars have TWO systems i.e Front Left & back Right, so if a seal goes, the braking, whilst reduced, is present & balanced (ish). I always start nearest to Master Cylinder. But if you have only disturbed the rear Calipers, it makes sense to bleed them first. Then bleed the fronts to change the fluid.
You are only young once, but you can be immature forever
