It is necessary to bleed the brakes after replacing the ABS module? Danke! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Nope. ( Unless you needed to bleed'em <I>before</I> you replaced it.)<br>The brake hydraulic system is completely sealed from the ABS solenoid/control module.<br>That's why the brakes still work without the module in place. <br>Just no ABS (or speedo or cruise...) until you reinstall the module.

Re: ABS module replacement question... (GG820)

I actually purchased it through my friend's shop. It would have been substantially less expensive to have Victor rebuild it ( <A HREF="http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/" TARGET="_blank">http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/</A>), but I wanted to throw some business to my friend. Have a most brilliant Wednesday one and all <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
