The Gunson's will be fine. I can only imagine that the Haynes book is referring to the method of building up pressure with the brake pedal before a second person opens the nipple or some other high pressure method.

I had no problems on the wife's old Cavalier SRI with ABS using an eezibleed.
Did it exactly the same as any other car I've used it on.

Am about to do the wifes Megane Convertible, when pushing the caliper piston back just undoe the bleed nipple as the fluid will then flow straight out instead of back in to the system.
