thanks to the posts and members of this forum, i've just completed a TB replacement on an '04 jetta and a clutch job on a '05 golf. i would have never attempted this without the detailed guides.

and now the question... for mk4 tdis, the bentley manual says to bleed brakes starting with the left front. any reason as to why left front instead of right rear? does this have to do with the mk60 abs?

Yes... the Mk60 (Mark IV cars) ABS requires a reversed bleeding sequence...

(BTW: for lurkers: the 2004/5 Passats have yet another procedure...)

PS: don't forget to bleed the clutch line, if you have one...

so i understand why you'd bleed the furthest brake first and the nearest brake last. what does the mk60 ABS do to require you to reverse the sequence? just curious.

and i did forget to bleed the clutch :( i'll need to do it when my son brings the car back.
