Who here still has Ate Super Blue left? I only have one unopened can.
Doesn't flashing the brake fluid require exercising the ABS? Aren't we supposed to renew the fluid every 2 or so years due to the hygroscopic properties of the fluid and also given the fact that the brake fluid in the ABS system mixes with the rest of the brake fluid flow circuit when the ABS is engaged during panic stops?

A full flush should require you to need to bleed the ABS, in that case. Yes.

Oh a side note, my mech managed to get my soft brake pedal perfect again. I didn't find out how sadly. I will next time I go in.
Just glad to have it done safely.

I swear, my cars are like a girlfriend.
Sometimes its a rough ride, sometimes its smooth motorin'.
Sometimes she doesnt like how i treat her and sometimes i dont like how she behaves.
BUT at the end of the day, she loves it when I am inside her.
