    I read somewhere that bleeding brakes on an LR4 requires the engine to be running (something to do with the brake power booster) - correct, or is that not necessary. Anything else I should know beyond bleed from farthest location to nearest?

    Thanks in advance!

    I bled my brakes the old fashioned way with the engine off. No problems.

    I do it with it running, have done it in the past with it off don’t really think it makes a difference( unless you’ve got your girlfriend pumping the pedal....then do it with it running so it’s easier to push)

    Does anyone know why the LR4 FSM requires pumping the pedal even if using a pressure bleeder? Usually, pressure bleeding eliminates the need for pedal pumping. Seems bizarre to me. I have used a pressure bleeder on my other vehicles for 15+ years and never needed to touch the pedal - and, it's a 1-person operation.

    That doesn't make sense. It should be one or the other.
