I recently installed a brake master cylinder on a 2013 Jetta and ended up getting air into the system. I bled the system the conventional way, but could not get a good pedal---could only get a good pedal after pumping the pedal twice, indicating that there was still air in the system. After some research, I found that I needed to use my Ross Tech to bleed the system. I plugged-in, went into Basic Settings and then into the Bleeding Brakes procedure, but was having trouble following the prompts---I tried several times with a helper, but with no success. I am getting good bleeds, that is; had no air bubbles in the bleeding tube and started with the left front and worked my way to the right rear, but still had air in the system. I did some more research, but could not find anything real clear-cut for instructions on the bleeding the brakes with the scanner.

Wondering if there is a printed info page to guide me with the bleeding procedure?

Thanks

Did you bench bleed the master cylinder before you installed it? I recently bled the system in my 2011 jetta with no problems recently just to get all the fluid swapped out and there was nothing really unique about it.
