Fuel filter renewal - bleeding procedure

Hi all

I have read on the forum that you can run an ISTA procedure to bleed the air out of the system after renewal of the fuel filter.
Is this functionality available with ISTA-D? I cannot find how to do it for the life of me!

How have you guys done when replacing the filter? I have read some just crank the engine after filter renewal.

Many thanks in advance

That's all I did, turn on the ignition and the system will self bleed, then turn/crank the engine over.
