See Figure 1
On models equipped with an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), if during brake system service, or because of a fluid leak, the level of fluid in the system ever falls below that of the Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU), refer to the bleeding procedure in the ABS portion of this section. To properly bleed the HCU, an expensive scan tool is necessary; take this into consideration when contemplating brake system service. However, if only the brake pads, calipers, master cylinder, and other non-ABS components are being removed and installed, bleeding the HCU is not necessary and, therefore, the scan tool is not necessary.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- Detach the brake fluid lines from the valve.
- Remove the valve mounting nuts, then pull the valve off of the frame member.
- Position the valve on the mounting studs, then install the mounting nuts. Tighten the nuts to 91-142 inch lbs. (11-16 Nm).
- Connect the brake fluid lines to the valve and tighten the line fittings to 124-212 inch lbs. (14-24 Nm).
- Bleed the hydraulic brake system.
