SMG Bleeding topic !!

Hi guys,

So I discovered a leak in my SMG system through the hose and have had it replaced through an independent mechanic.

Apparently I have to bleed the SMG system now to make sure there are no air in the system and only a BMW dealership can do this?

First of all does it need to be bled and can ONLY a BMW dealership can do this?

Can anybody shed some light please?

Cheers

You need INPA or a GT1. Take it to a good indy.

Takes about 15 minutes to do, so it should be a half-hour labor charge. If you need it ASAP then find a dealer/indy. If you can wait you can order the software off eBay.
