Bleeding the ABS System


Older brake pads or shoes may contain asbestos, which has been determined to be cancer causing agent. Never clean the brake surfaces with compressed air! Avoid inhaling any dust from any brake surface! When cleaning brake surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid.

The RWAL system can be bled in much the same way as a conventional brake system. Bleeding can be performed manually or with vacuum/pressure equipment, as long as the recommended bleeding sequence is followed. Bleed only one brake component at a time. The recommended bleeding sequence is: master cylinder, combination valve, rear anti-lock valve, left rear wheel, right rear wheel, right front wheel, left front wheel.
