Question 2000 E 430 brake fluid flush

I have a 2000 E 430 with ESP.ABS I guess BAS?, no SBC. I would like to flush the brake system with a vacuum bleeder. It is a Vacula and holds about a gallon of used fluid. I have used this system for years on my other vehicles, none are MBZ. Does anyone see a problem with this? Thank You, new to BenzWorld, new to MBZ.

Welcome. Your car is W210 body and good news is that W210 section on this forum has one of the best folks ever
The brake flush is already covered in the section stickies (at the top of the section) as well as some home made accessories that will help you save money.
Bad news is that vacuum doesn't work on those brakes, good news is, that you can build pressurized bleeder for just few dollars while using you spare wheel for the power.
