Re: Brake fluid flush
There are two circuits one control and one wheel each for front and rear. The nipple on the side is for the cross port bleed between the two control circuits and contains very little fluid and can be skipped for a flush. I would bleed it only if air was introduced in the control circuit. They moved it up to the top on the 05 and up units.
The wheel circuits are more critical to flush as they are "stressed" more than the control circuits. But I would still consider flushing the control circuits if they have not been done in the last couple of years. They are flushed through those fittings on the ABS unit.
