So the master cylinder reservoir was not dry, but anyways I had to replace the two lines from the M.C to the ABS module.

Is there any special way to go about bleeding it? Do I just pop open the caliper screws and wait for things to bleed like normal?

Right now it has little or no braking power. It barely had any before because one of the M.C. lines was leaking real bad.

Thank you.

hi, i would bleed all 4 wheels .

fill mc.
pump brakes till it stiffens -
with pedal down
open bleed screw - close bleed screw
now let pedal up and pump
repeat till just clean fluid comes out

do this to all wheels

go for drive and engage abs on sand
if it still soft, bleed again all 4

Bleed all 4 like normal. You definitely have air in the lines.
