    Brake fluid replacement on car with traction control

    When referring to the service manuals I have, they recommend bringing the car to the dealer with a proper scan tool to replace the brake fluid if your car is equipped with TCS.

    I did some quick searching, but would love if someone had first hand experience with this here.

    Drain a most of the fluid, put new fluid in, bleed the brakes until the new fluid appears, put more fluid in.

    Probably like 25 minutes worth of work.

    You can still bleed the brakes, but if you have air in the ABS module you may not get it out without being able to activate the module like the dealers can.

    I've never had an issue but if you're anal go stomp on the brakes on wet ground to trigger the abs, then re bleed.

    Thanks, sounds like the tip is to be cautious and ensure you don't introduce air.
