Hey everyone! A while back I ran across the image below in someone's post showing a particular order in which the brakes need to be bled on Subaru's with ABS. It is attached below.

Curiously, the Subaru Factory Service Manual simply states in the Air Bleeding Section (pg BR-55, 2012 manual) that the bleeding sequence should start at the wheel farthest from the brake master cylinder, working closer to the master cylinder with each subsequent wheel.

Which is correct?

In the past I have always done this as specified in the manual, but at the same time I have not performed this on any vehicle with ABS. Help!
