CAUTION
The Honda anti-lock brake system contains brake fluid under extremely high pressure within the pump, accumulator and modulator assembly. Do not disconnect or loosen any lines, hoses, fittings or components without properly relieving the system pressure. Use only a bleeder T-wrench 07HAA-SG00100, or equivalent, to relieve pressure. Improper procedures or failure to discharge the system pressure may result in severe personal injury and/or property damage.
