    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    Specific test equipment is required to check the operation and adjustment of the regulator.

    If replaced, the adjustment of the regulator should be verified by a certified technician using approved equipment. Improper adjustment of the regulator will affect the vehicle's stability under braking.

    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the hydraulic fluid from the master cylinder with a syringe or hose used only with clean brake fluid.
    2.  
    3. Note the location of the tensioning spring bracket and matchmark, then remove the spring.
    4.  
    5. Using paint, matchmark the brake lines to the pressure regulator.
    6.  
    7. Using a flare nut wrench to loosen, disconnect the brake lines from the proportioning valve.

    2.
