Before servicing any vehicle, please be sure to read all of the following precautions, which deal with personal safety, prevention of component damage, and important points to take into consideration when servicing a motor vehicle:
Clean any dust from the front brake and rear brake with a vacuum dust collector. Never blow with compressed air.
Use only specified brake fluid.
Never reuse drained brake fluid.
Never spill or splash brake fluid on painted surfaces. Brake fluid may seriously damage paint. Wipe it off immediately and wash with water if it gets on a painted surface.
Always clean with new brake fluid when cleaning the master cylinder, brake caliper and other components.
Never use mineral oils such as gasoline or light oil to clean. They may damage rubber parts and cause improper operation.
Always loosen the brake tube flare nut with a flare nut wrench.
Tighten the brake tube flare nut to the specified torque with crowfoot and torque wrench.
Always confirm the specified tightening torque when installing the brake pipes.
Turn the ignition switch OFF and disconnect the ABS actuator and electric unit (control unit) connector or the battery negative terminal before performing the work.
Check that no brake fluid leakage is present after replacing the parts.
Burnish the brake contact surfaces after refinishing or replacing rotors, after replacing pads, or if a soft pedal occurs at very low mileage.
After removing/installing or replacing ABS actuator and electric unit (control unit), steering angle sensor, steering and suspension components which affect wheel alignment or after adjusting wheel alignment, be sure to adjust neutral position of steering angle sensor before running vehicle. Adjustment of steering angle sensor neutral position requires CONSULT-III.
