Help bleeding air out of brakes please?

Hello BenzWorlders,

I recently bought and assembled a pressure bleeder from MercedesSource. Today I pressure bled the brakes on my 99 w202 c280. Everything there seems to be fine, better than before in fact.

However, I used the same procedure for my 89 w124 300e and have a problem.
The brake pedal is really soft for more than half its initial travel and at the deep end of the pedal travel, there isn't as much braking as there used to be.

I suspect there is air in the system. How can I bleed the air out? Do I need more brake fluid? What do you recommend?

Keep bleeding until you see no more bubbles.
