I was working on my friend’s 2014 Hyundai Sonata after he hit a massive pothole and bent 2 wheels. The AAA guy who towed the car completely drained the brake fluid and left the bleeders open because “he had to unlock the brakes.” TLDR: a spare tire from another car crushed the caliper and caused the brakes to get stuck; no real mechanical damage. I proceeded to change his bald brake pads and filled up the reservoir. I bled the two front brakes that were empty, then went from furthest to the closest wheel relative to the master cylinder. The brakes feel firm now. I was reading on some other forums that if the brake system is completely emptied, it is necessary to bleed both the master cylinder and the abs pump. Does anyone know the procedure for this car? The brakes feel good but I want to make sure everything is good and the abs will work if he ever has to make a panic stop. Any and all feedback is deeply appreciated!
