Sorry for not replying sooner. I specifically went for an ELS27 because it stated full support for both MS- and HS-CAN.

There's a good post on here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6142

This has a long table of various adapters, compatible protocols etc. The key is having an STN11xx range chipset which has built in support for protocol switching; more details about MS- and HS-CAN switching (or devising your own for an older dongle) are also on the forscan forum: viewtopic.php?t=4

I have my new ELM327 Modified adapter, but I still don't see a service procedure for bleeding the abs brakes. Any ideas?

I have an obdmx+ adapter as recommended by forscan but I do not see the abs bleed option anywhere???
What am I doing wrong?

As @mplieb commented to me via PM (and which I only just saw, apologies again mplieb!) FORScan doesn't yet have ABS bleed implemented for his model vehicle. May be the same for you...

Do you see MSCAN and HSCAN protocols supported in the FORScan Modules page when you're live connected to the vehicle?
