    Hi again;

    The saga continues. I've got a 1993 T&C van with the Bendix 10 ABS.
    I've resigned myself to the fact that I have to replace the ABS
    Parts cost approx $250.
    So -- Where is this thing located? How difficult is it to replace
    I've done lots of auto repair work before but this is my first ABS
    Are there any tricks in replacing it? Any special tools needed?
    Many Thanks in advance.
    Gary --- Atlanta.

    PS. Still in dispute with the dealer demanding why they didn't check
    pump pressure and leak-down rate when I asked them to verify that the
    warranty parts are still good.

    It takes less then 5 min to replace. purchase the part and you will see
    where it goes and how easy it is to install. All you need is an oil filter
    wrench or a large pair of pliers. MAKE SURE TO RELEASE ALL PRESSURE BEFORE
    ATTEMPTING REPAIR! Key off......pump the brake pedal at least 60 times
    before removing this part and do not turn key back on until the new part is
    installed. Stop crying about the pressure test and the fact that you had to
    purchase the part!!! The dealer did do a pressure test, how do you think
    they told you the accumulator was bad??? A gauge has to be installed to
    determine this.
