How to use Foxwell NT520 for ABS Brake Bleeding on Land Rover Discovery II?

Foxwell NT520 /NT530 is confirmed to perform ABS Brake Bleeding on Land Rover Discovery II.

 

Purpose: ABS Brake Bleeding

 

Car model: Land Rover Discovery II

 

Symptom: My front driver side wheel was smoking with apparent burning rubber smell.

 

What I Did to Do:

Replaced all 4 calipers, BMC and booster on my old D2 couple years ago and Id like to swap it all over and do a proper brake bleed (3 step process).

 

Possible tools:

  1. Atlantic British Iland Diagnostic tool: $400 (too expensive)

 

  1. Icarsoft Diagnostic tool: not work

 

  1. Foxwell NT520 / Foxwell 530: about 179USD free shipping from Foxwelltool.com, it makes brake bleeding mad easy.

 

  1. Manual way: I bled my brakes by jumping out the abs relay with two wires, long enough to reach the furthest wheel, and a push button to activate the pump, while I opened the bleeders one by one. Easy-peasy.
