Brake Fluid Flush

Sorry if this is a repeated question, but I cannot find a guide on how to do a brake fluid flush. I've got a motive power bleeder, but wasn't sure if I needed to do anything special to bleed my e90. I've read a couple things that say I need to cycle the ABS, but not sure exactly how to do this. Any help for this noob would be appreciated. Thanks!

Check out this two part video:

No need to cycle the ABS when using a power bleeder.

When you attach the two pieces of the power bleeder tube (2nd half has the master cylinder cap on it) use teflon tape on the tube connector threads or it will drip and lose pressure.

Thanks Glim! How do I reset the brake fluid service light once I've done the flush?

So I bled the system no problem, until I got to the last wheel front driver side. The nipple is blocked. I was able to bleed the system through the threads. I want to change the bleed screw with a new one. How can I do this without introducing air into the system?
