Default brake bleeding

Just bought 06 tribeca.Changed rotors and brakes and a brake line.When I tried to vacuum bleed drivers front wheel couldn't get any fluid.Then I realised it had abs pump Can only get fluid out of rear left and front right. Got some air but other 2 wheels can get only a little fluid.Anyone know what proper procedure on bleeding those brakes is.I know I need to cycle abs pump but not sure how to do it.Any help would surly be apreiciated.Thanks in advance.

Was the driver's front wheel the one your replaced the line on?

Also, you don't need to cycle the abs system if you didn't get any air in it. Sure, it won't hurt, but it's also not necessary in most situations. If you never let any air get into the master cylinder, it is highly unlikely that any air got into the abs module.

I tried vacuum bleeding after I replaced all 4 of my brake lines and it sucked. I would highly recommend using a 1 man bleeder such as this one: https://www.autozone.com/test-scan-a...-kit/46839_0_0.

Then you want to follow the correct bleeding procedure which should be listed in the factory service manual or in your owner's manual. For most Subarus, it goes: FR, BL, FL, BR.

Try using brake pedal to get more pressure. Maybe something has clogged the bleeder.
