Removal & Installation
Do not allow any brake fluid to come in contact with a painted surface; it will damage the paint. If brake fluid gets on the paint, wash it off immediately with water. Be careful not to damage or deform the brake lines during removal and installation.
- Remove the air intake duct.
- Pull up the lock (A) of the VSA modulator-control unit 46P connector (B), and the connector disconnects itself.
- Disconnect the six brake lines. Plug the lines to prevent brake fluid from leaking out.
- Remove the three 6mm bolts, then remove the bracket (C) with the VSA modulator-control unit (D) from the body.
Remove the two 6mm nuts, then remove the VSA modulator-control unit from the bracket.
- Install the VSA modulator-control unit on the bracket, then tighten the two 6mm nuts to 72 inch ft. lbs. (8 Nm).
- Install the bracket with the VSA modulator-control unit, then tighten the three 6mm bolts to 7.2 ft. lbs. (9.8 Nm).
- Reconnect the six brake lines, then tighten the flare nuts to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm).
- Align the connecting surface of the VSA modulator-control unit 46P connector to the VSA modulator-control unit.
- Lower the lock of the VSA modulator-control unit 46P connector, then confirm the connector is fully seated.
- Bleed the brake system, starting with the front wheels.
- Start the engine, and check that the ABS and VSA indicators go off.
- Test-drive the vehicle, and check that the ABS and VSA indicators do not come on.
- If the brake pedal is now spongy, there may be air trapped in the modulator and then induced into the normal brake system during modulation. Bleed the brake system again, starting with the front wheels.
