Like a kook, I stripped one of the E6 torx bolts on the ABS module, guess I was too casual, oh well. So far, unable to remove it, ordered a smaller set of sockets, hopefully an E5 will seat on it enough to take. Otherwise, I have to remove the ABS hydraulic modulator to get at the ABS module.

If the ABS hydraulic modulator is removed, and upon reinstalling it, is there a proper sequence for bleeding the system after the brake pipes are attached. Does each corner have to be bled?

Each corner, with a suction gun - the one that bleeds from the caliper valve. Pressure bleeders won't do that.

In extreme cases you need to turn on/off ABS valves in VIDA to release trapped air to brake lines (and then bleed).

you stripped the head, or you stripped the hole? I'm assuming you stripped the head since you're talking about an e5.

hammer a smaller sized 12 point on it. hard.
it will probably come out.

and I've never had a problem with pressure bleeding a completely dry system. I've had more success with that than using my mityvac, or a compressor powered vacuum setup.

Well it was an E5 screw to begin with so that might be why you stripped it. Try a couple of small 12 point sockets and see if you get any traction that way.

I stripped the head. Apparently the bolt head tapers, E5 at the head and E6 at the base. Anyhow, received an E5 in the mail today, not working out, I really mucked it up. I’ll try to find a smaller 12 pt socket of sorts. Is there a bolt extractor bit/socket that comes that small? So pissed I made project out of something so simple.
