As far as working around the ABS? If I use a pressure bleeder will I have to worry about air in the system?
I will be doing the service next weekend and I want to nip any issues that might arise in the bud before I jack 'er up.. Thanks..

Pressure bleeder is essential imo.

reservoir. If you don't know, the correct bleeding order is: RR, LR, RF, & LF. Bleed each wheel cylinder until the fluid runs clear. You'll need ~1 liter of DOT 4 fluid to flush the system.

Before initiating the bleeding, R&R as much of the old brake fluid with new fluid from the reservoir. Also, there may be a pressure regulator attached to the rear axle and the body that limits the braking on the rears (my '96 Avant doesn't have it). If you have one, you need to relieve the pressure by pushing the lever in the opposite direction of forward braking (can't recall if its towards the rear or front).
