Removal & Installation




CAUTION
Brake fluid may irritate eyes and skin. In case of contact, take the following actions:



Eye contact--rinse thoroughly with water
 
Skin contact--wash with soap and water
 
If ingested--consult a physician immediately
 


CAUTION
For safety reasons, the Brake Pressure Modulator Valve (BPMV) must not be repaired; the complete unit must be replaced. With the exception of the EBCM/EBTCM, no screws may be loosened. If screws are loosened, it will not be possible to get the brake circuits leak-tight and personal injury may result.


NOTE
Avoid spilling brake fluid onto painted surfaces, electrical connections, wiring, or cables. Brake fluid will damage painted surfaces and cause corrosion to electrical components. If any brake fluid comes in contact with painted surfaces, immediately flush the area with water. If any brake fluid comes in contact with electrical connections, wiring, or cables, use a clean shop cloth to wipe away the fluid.

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  2.  
  3. Remove the cruise control module mounting bolts, if equipped.
  4.  
  5. Position the cruise control module aside.
  6.  
  7. Remove the air cleaner assembly from the engine compartment.
  8.  
  9. Disconnect the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) harness electrical connector.
  10.  
  11. Disconnect the EBCM to Brake Pressure Modulator Valve (BPMV) electrical connector.
    NOTE
    Note the locations of the brake pipes in order to aid in installation.

  12.  
  13. Disconnect the 4 wheel brake pipes from the BPMV.
    NOTE
    Cap the brake pipes to prevent brake fluid leakage and contamination.

  14.  
  15. Position the brake pipes aside.
  16.  
  17. Disconnect the master cylinder brake pipes from the BPMV.
  18.  
  19. Loosen the brake pipes, but do not remove the brake pipes from the master cylinder.
    NOTE
    Cap the brake pipes to prevent brake fluid leakage and contamination.

  20.  
  21. Position the brake pipes aside.
  22.  
  23. Remove the 2 lower BPMV mounting bracket nuts from the inner wheel housing mount surface of the strut tower.
  24.  
  25. Loosen the top BPMV mounting nut.
  26.  
  27. Remove the BPMV mounting bracket and the EBCM assembly from the vehicle by sliding up and toward the engine to separate from the wheelhouse slot.
    NOTE
    When removing the brake pressure modulator valve, protect the vehicle exterior from possible brake fluid spillage. Brake fluid can cause damage to painted surfaces.

  28.  
  29. Remove the 2 nuts/bolts that secure the BPMV to the mounting bracket.
  30.  
  31. If only replacing the BPMV, remove the EBCM.
  32.  

To install:

  1. Install EBCM to the BPMV, if removed.
  2.  
  3. Install BPMV/EBCM assembly to the mounting bracket.
    NOTE
    Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

  4.  
  5. Install the 2 nuts/bolts securing the BPMV assembly to the mounting bracket and tighten the nuts/bolts to 84 inch lbs (10 Nm).
  6.  
  7. Install the BPMV bracket to the strut tower.
  8.  
  9. Install the 3 BPMV mounting nuts and tighten the nuts to 89 inch lbs (10 Nm). Reposition any lines or hoses that were moved out of place.
    CAUTION
    Make sure brake pipes are correctly connected to brake pressure modulator valve. If brake pipes are switched by mistake, wheel lockup will occur and personal injury may result. The only two ways this condition can be detected are by using a Scan Tool or by doing an Antilock stop.


    NOTE
    If a new BPMV is being installed, remove the shipping plugs from the valve openings as necessary.

  10.  
  11. Install the master cylinder brake pipes into the BPMV and tighten the fittings to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  12.  
  13. Install the 4 wheel brake pipes on the BPMV and tighten the fittings to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  14.  
  15. Connect the EBCM to BPMV electrical connector.
  16.  
  17. Connect the EBCM harness electrical connector.
  18.  
  19. Install the air cleaner assembly.
  20.  
  21. Install the cruise control module, if equipped.
  22.  
  23. Perform the automated ABS bleed procedure.
  24.
