Thanks John will do the visual tomorrow as I assumed it was the only way to know for sure.
Question I have is where did all the fluid come from?
I really don't think I grasp this brake system
Front and rear circuits, ABS and Wheels, and never the two shall meet, correct?
If so, then those pucks depend on what amount of fluid, in what circuit to operate?
I know I did get a wig wag a while back, and had to fill the rear ABS to make it go away.
As I did not measure I don't know for sure but this seemed like a lot more fluid then I recall putting in.
And since many have said to take some out before replacing the pads, where are they taking it out from? Is everyone pulling that rear left side body panel and taking it from the ABS pot?
Anyway too cloudy to have at it today but will get er done tomorrow.
I did just take it around the block and all seems well with no idiot lights.
Not sure what having those pots overfull will do, so need to look. Seems to me from the part breakaway that if one of those pots got overfull, both will be?
