For bleeding Mini brakes, what is the purpose of the scan tool described in the Bentley Mini Cooper service manual?? What are the consequences, if any, of bleeding the brakes without the scan tool??

You can bleed the brakes like you would any other vehicle with no ill result. Nothing to worry about.

You need the scan tool. If you don't use the scan tool to bleed the ABS brakes you will burn out the ABS pump. And maybe it can affect other mini parts as well.
