I need to replace the abs hydraulic proportioning valve

Customer Question

I need to replace the abs hydraulic proportioning valve module on my E450 7.3. I have already replaced all calipers and master cylinder. I'm only getting the front brakes to work correctly. The job doesn't look to bad is there anything that I would need to do to bleed the brakes out after it is installed? It's a Kelsey Hayes 2c24-2c346. Thank you, Pat

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

When you replace the ABS HCU, mark the lines with masking tape and draw out a diagram which goes where. There is no diagram showing which lines goes where if you confuse them. Once installed. Bleed the brakes. Hook up a diagnostic tool and perform and ABS bleed. Then bleed at the wheels again to remove the purged air from the HCU that the scan tool got out.
