It is said that if your car has PSM and you are removing or disconnecting any components at the MC, chances are that you will create air in the brake lines therefore will require a scan tool that will disengage the PSM valve allowing for a better bleeding process. Thank you for all your enlightenment and keep those videos coming as they are very educational to the community.
Wow that's really interesting
