When replacing the ABS module do the brakes need to be bled? Is there any other "syncing" or diagnostic processes necessary on completion or is it just plug and play? Also, the four bolts retaining the unit are they torx bolts?
If there are any other suggestions or tips you can think of it would be much appreciated.
Thank you, regards.
Jon

Hello, if you are just replacing the electronic portion then there is no bleeding necessary.
However, it will need programmed with a star mobile device in order to work properly.
Hope this helps.
