Nissan 240SX/Altima 1993-1998 Repair Guide

Bleeding the ABS System


All Nissan vehicles equipped with an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) utilize a low-pressure system. Special depressurization procedures are, therefore, NOT necessary prior to servicing the ABS brakes on vehicles so-equipped.

The bleeding procedures for vehicles with conventional braking systems and those with ABS are similar. (Refer to the bleeding procedure, earlier in this section.) However, the order in which bleeding should be performed is different. On ABS equipped vehicles, bleed the brakes in the following order: left rear, right rear, left front and right front.
