1998 buick lesabre - replacing abs front disc brake pads

I have changed front brake pads on a non abs brake system car. Are there any special precautions that you have to take to change the front brake pads on my 98 Buick Lesabre?

Agree. Use autolibrary.org to guide you (if they have the info)

Make sure that when pushing the pistons back in the caliper you open the bleed screw at the caliper so the old fluid does not go back up to the master cylinder. The old fluid will increase the risk of your expensive ABS unit goimg bad.

Take the time to suck the old fluid out of the master cylinder and replace with new fluid all the way to the calipers.

Is that a "pay" site?
