Precautions when servicing the brake system and/or components:

Clean dust on front brake and rear brake with a vacuum dust collector. Do not blow with compressed air.
Recommended fluid is brake fluid -DOT 3-.
Never reuse drained brake fluid.
Be careful not to splash brake fluid on painted areas; it may cause paint damage. If brake fluid is splashed on painted areas, wash it away with water immediately.
Use clean brake fluid, to clean or wash all parts of master cylinder and disc brake caliper, etc.
Never use mineral oils such as gasoline or kerosene. They will ruin rubber parts of the hydraulic system.
Use flare nut torque wrench when installing brake tube.
When installing brake tube and hose, be sure to check torque.
Before working, turn ignition switch OFF and disconnect connectors of ABS actuator and electric unit (control unit) or battery cable from the negative terminal.
Burnish the brake contact surfaces after refinishing or replacing rotors, after replacing pads, or if a soft pedal occurs at very low mileage.
