esapce rear brakes

HELP!! Espace V6
Rear brakes
Having had to change the callipers (rear....brenbo)
can anybody throw some light on the bleeding procedure as I have done it staring furthest away from brake reservoir staring with rear left.....rear right....front right.....front left....Is this the right way? Also has ABS on so do I need to do a particular procedure with this or will it bleed through itself??
I have done this with the engine running to assist with the bleeding. I have taken it round the block and everything seems to be fine. Can anybody help ??
Thanks, Andy

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.
