Precaution for Brake System
- Clean dust on front brake and rear brake with a vacuum dust collector. Do not blow with compressed air.
- Recommended fluid is brake fluid "DOT 3".
- Never reuse drained brake fluid.
- Be careful not to splash brake fluid on painted areas; it may cause paint damage. If brake fluid is splashed on painted areas, wash it away with water immediately.
- Use clean brake fluid, to clean or wash all parts of master cylinder and disc brake caliper, etc.
- Never use mineral oils such as gasoline or kerosene. They will ruin rubber parts of the hydraulic system.

- Before working, turn ignition switch OFF and disconnect connectors of ABS actuator and electric unit (control unit) or battery cable from the negative terminal.
- Burnish the brake contact surfaces after refinishing or replacing rotors, after replacing pads, or if a soft pedal occurs at very low mileage. Refer to See: Disc Brake System\Brake Pad\Service and Repair\Procedures\Brake Burnishing.
