that's for sure. the brake lines going from the master cylinder into and then out of the ABS unit would also be a dead give-away. each caliper has a small fluid reservoir inside the ABS unit.

As per the helms manual it's LF, RF, RR, LR. I did it myself on my car and another with no issues.

How would you go about switching to synthetic brake fluid? would it be bad to mix the two during the bleed process? i just have a few bottles of synthetic brake fluid laying around, and i was curious.

your suppose to bleed furthest back.. for switching to synthetic i would drain the system, remove the BMC, clean it and do a bench bleed on the BMC then do a typical bleed to the rest of the sytem.. just dont reuse the fluid.

so
1) remove the fluid by opening RR and drain all fuid, repeat with LR, LF and RF untill complete
2) remove the stock brake lines on BMC and remove BMC, clean with water and degreaser.. let dry 100%.
3. reinstall BMC and attach new Brake line to the BMC that are just long enough to go up and nto the resiviour below the full mark..
4) fill with fluid and pump the brakes so it recirulates the air out of the new fluid..
when all the air is gone attach the stock brake line back to the BMC and bleed as per helm..

ok never bleed brakes before, i have the helms manual and i've been doing reading but i just want to make sure im doing the right thing before i do it here. so what i'm going to do is bleed a wheel (i'm not gonna specify which wheel due to all the arguments on that here) then fill the reservoir, then bleed another wheel followed by the reservoir again and repeat until complete? Please no flaming i just want to make sure i'm right. these are BRAKES we're talking about here.

Make sure its full to begin with, have someone pump the brakes then hold it, while there holding you crack open the bleeder just a bit and let fluid out, tell whoever is pumping the pedal not to let it go to the floor and do not, i repeat DO NOT let the pedal come back up until you tell him to do so. Check after every corner you bleed, do each corner 3-4 times then check the master.

What happens if you don't do that and just bleed it by flushing out the old one with the new stuff. Ie the motul synthetic that says it safe for dot 3 and 4 systems

go to pet store and get a hose from the fish area, or you can go to your local hardware store and go in the plumbing section. for the bottle, just use a regular water bottle.

Anybody know where to get a T wrench (Honda Part 07HAA-SG00101) for bleeding the high pressure fluid from the ABS system?

I relaced my calipers and rotors, i have started to bled the system and have not got any pressure. I tried many methods. I do get this lil air noise from the abs pump so IDK if it got messed up or not. I was told to get a new abs pump so i got a new one and nothing. I have not moved the car as I gave up I tried it all all ready. DOes it matter if the car is on to turn on the abs or what am I doing wrong, I have a thread about this so IF you can help i would apricaite it thanks.

the car shouldnt be on, you might be screwed since you put an abs pump on the pump and abs system now might have air in it so.

Yes both way do work fine.

I prefer farthest from mc first, thats the way its been done since before i was born, so i tend to lean toward that.

And not too sure how to get air out of the abs system. sorry!

Thread bump

My brake fluid is really dirty and needs to be flushed. I'm going to try to flush it this weekend. From what I gathered in this thread, I want to make sure I have this procedure correct.

-Pump dirty fluid out of reservoir until the Min line is reached
-Fill reservoir to Max line with new brake fluid
-Bleed brakes at each corner (LF, RF, LR, RR)
-Continue to fill reservoir with new fluid to Max line after bleeding each corner

Is that it?

Correct, but i would reccomend that you start furthest from the reservoir. RR,LR,RF,LF
