Bleeding brakes????

I'm changing my calipers tomorrow. Is the a special procedure to bleed the brakes. I've never bled a system with abs. Any info is appropriated.

David somewhere back in the post archives there was an extensive write-up on doing complete brake jobs and change-overs including great pics. I know this reply is of little value but maybe it will jog someone's memory .

no since your only disconnecting lines/hoses just bleed it out right there. install part then open bleeder with cap off wait for fluid to run out then close bleeder. have someone pump the break 3 times slowly then hold third time down crack bleeder till fluid slows to almost drip close and repeat that step until no more air comes out. top off master and enjoy.

Unless you need to bleed the ABS pump. Proper way to do this is with a dealer computer, it's an option in the menu.

I changed the brake fluid in my Explorer last weekend. Seems to me the process would be the same. Motive products has something that would help you out, and you can do it solo. Check them out. I was able to not only replace the fluid, but bleed the brake lines all at the same time. It really made that whole process much much easier.
