ABS and traction control. getting ready to do front brakes. parts supplier
says best to open bleeders and let fluid out when compressing the pistons
back into the calipers to prevent damage to ABS system. My manual say DRBII
needed to properly bleed brakes and instructions for replacing front pads
mentions nothing about bleeding or bleeders being opened to prevent ABS
also if I decide to rebuild or replace the front calipers (already got new
rotors) I need to go thru this anyway?.
I've done millions of brakes but never had a ABS system. Any suggestions?
just like every other brake job in the last 20 years.....excellent!
still debating on the calipers.......rebuilts are $40.00, rebuild kit is
$8.00. so save the labor or save the money I guess, at 90,000 miles I guess
either way is good.
I was surprised when I had to change the distributor in the 360 my 84 1 ton
truck.........all the parts places were very high 90.00-100.00 for a
rebuilt....... Chrysler was actually cheaper than all of them at 68.00.
but then I went to work on my buddies moms Honda......distrib for it was
over 200.00. always seemed to be that way back in the 80s and mid 90s.
cracking open the bleeder is a good idea as it will allow old crappy
fluid out while pushing the piston in. better than forcing this old
fluid back into the master brake cylinder.... just remember to top it
back up after you are done.
