Default Relieving pressure in anti lock brakes.

I have heard that relieving pressure in antilock brakes is dangerous without
the proper tool. I need to know how to relieve the pressure in a 2000 Acura
Integra. Does anyone know a way to do it. Taking it to a shop is out of
the question. Also, does anyone know where it is safe to disconnect any of
the lines without relieving the pressure?

Thanks

There's a maintenance bleeder on top of the modulator. Remove its cap,
attach a short hose leading to a container that will hold a cup or so
of brake fluid, then crack the bleeder valve with a wrench and bleed
the pressure off.

Do not loosten the relief plug on the accumulator.

But do yourself a favour, buy a shop manual if you're going to play
around with brakes.

I bought one of those Chilton manuals from the parts store and in it they
describe how to bleed the pressure in ABS brakes for 97 and older. It says
starting in 98 there is no provision for bleeding the system pressure. I'm
kinda worried cause the book says it's under like 3200 psi.

Is there still a bleeder on mine and will it still work? If so I don't see
the bleeder.

Thanks

Could be. Mine's a 96

Remove the fuse that runs the pump and then drive the car for a couple
of days. Find some ice if you can.

If it's been sitting for some time the pressure has probably bled off.
