Stupid Question number 2021: I plan to flush and replace the brake fluid when I do some brake maintanance in the very near future. Won't this also flush the fluid in the ABS system?
2 seperate brake systems on the 94-97 Integras, The ABS needs to be flushed/bled by its self.
Here is the procedure for ABS brake fluid replacement and bleeding for '94-'97 Integras only (from the Helms manual):
1.) Remove the bleeder cap from the maintenance bleeder on the modulator unit.
2.) Attach the wrench to the maintenance bleeder.
3.) Connect a rubber tube of the appropriate diameter to the maintenance bleeder, and set the other end of the rubber tube in a suitable container.
4.) While holding the rubber tube with your hand, slowly loosen the maintenance bleeder 1/8 to 1/4 to collect the brake fluid in the container.
CAUTIoN: Do not loosen the maintenance bleeder too much. The high-pressure brake fluid can burst out.
5.) Tighten the maintenance bleeder.
6.) Start the engine and let it idle for a minute. Stop the engine.
7.) Check the brake fluid level in the reservoir. It should be below the MAX (upper) level line.
8.) Repeat the steps 4 through 7 to drain the rest of the brake fluid from the modulator unit.
9.) Remove the cap, and refill the reservoir to the MAX (upper) level with fresh brake fluid.
10.) Repeat steps 4 through 8 twice, and refill the reservoir to the MAX (upper) level with fresh brake fluid.
11.) Tighten the maintenance bleeder to the specified torque (8 lbf-ft).
12.) After replacement, start the engine and make sure that the ABS indicator light goes off.
Note: this ABS bleeding procedure only applies to '94-'97 Integras. The ABS system on '98-'01 Integras is different (ie. it does not have a seperate brake fluid reservior for the ABS system) and does not require a seperate bleeding procedure for the ABS system.
