I want to bleed the brakes on my 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe SEL Plus with electronic retracting parking brake.

I've bled lots of cars, besides replacing shoes and pads.

Is there anything different on this vehicle I need to know? Just open the bleeder valve and pump the brake? I use a hose in to a clear bottle.

I was also going to buy one of the HF brake bleeding kits.

if you have a compressor then get the HF vaccum brake bleeding kit. i have done hondas ,sub , hyundai with this kit. you really don't need anything special. few of these had the electric parking brake and they bled just like any other

On a new vehicle that your not sure of, I would try doing a gravity bleed.

Just open one bleeder screw and see if any fluid comes out.
If the fluid comes out and your reservoir is going down, just add more fluid.

Good luck.

Edit: I tried one of those vacuum tools where you suck the fluid out of the bleeder screw / very cleaver idea, but -
I had nothing but troubles with air coming in around the screw (even after putting grease around the threads).
I went back to my pressure bleeder and had good results.
