Am I ok to change the brake fluid using an air powered brake bleeding kit that sucks the fluid from the bleed nipples or will this damage the ABS system & secondly how do i remove any fluid residue that will be in the ABS accumulator :)

DO NOT TRY TO EMPTY THE SYSTEM!!

To change the fluid you just bleed the brakes as normal until you have used enough new fluid for there to be no old fluid left.

Yes, bleed the system as long as the new fluid reaches the brakes... don't let the level in the reserve tank drop below minimum!

This is rather easy task to do in general :)

you might want to flush the system a bit more with new brake fluid after all the old fluid has come out me thinks (something I didn't consider when I did mine :rolleyes: )

Thanks for the replies
I was going to bleed the system but do it using a powered brake bleeder which also has a header tank to top up the reservoir as the fluid drops which I didn't make clear :eek: this won't affect the abs at all will it?

Nope. It won't know the old fluid has gone and the new stuff has replaced it.
