    Pretty sure mate but not sure you would need it unless you were doing something like replacing the ABS unit... if you pressure bleed (on low pressure) your system fully then you should be fine at just that...

    Don't forget to do the master cylinder too... most spongy pedals after a fluid change can be sorted once the MC has been bled..

    I've never bled my ABS pump - ever. Just the normal proceedure and then the MC has always been fine.

    Ok, Thanks,
    Im hoping just a full preasure bleed and master cylinder bleed will do the job but i would rather be fully armed with whatelse might need to be done before i start.

    Just keep the pressure below 20psi mate and all will come good...
