It is not unusual for these cars to lose some accumulator pressure, slowly and over a matter of days/weeks, when the car is turned off. If it's losing pressure quite rapidly you either have accumulators that need rebuilding or accumulator control valves that are in need of rebuilding.

Bleeding the system should have little effect on the issue you're describing.

Read the Silver Shadow Brake Issues: Your Help Would Be Appreciated! thread where I posted some details about doing some diagnostic work based on specific symptoms.

I just e-mailed another forum participant the non-official, but completely effective and much easier, brake/hydraulic system bleeding instructions for the SY series cars. PM me with an e-mail address if you'd like it.
