Cover the connector and the socket with shop cloths to protect them from brake fluid.
NOTEDo not allow air into the hydraulic unit or into the brake pipes from the master cylinder. If air gets into the hydraulic unit, it will require a bleeding procedure using a scan tool programmed for the brake modulator system. As long as no air enters the hydraulic unit, a simple bleeding procedure is all the system will require.
