Location: An obscure body in the SK system
Default reversing side of 240 ABS Calipers

I have a frozen Left ABS caliper, (one hose, one bleeder)
Out of stock EVERYWHERE

Unlike the complex non ABS calipers, the body appears symmetrical to the contralateral side other than bleeder position.
I plan to drill a hole for a bleeder repair kit in the "blank" position.

Any problems with this plan?


going to lightly pressurize it with air (pistons blocked) during drill and tap (greased) to prevent metal chips ingress and lots of brakekleen

Sounds good except for the brakekleen part

I'd use some cheap0 brake fluid and the Motive power bleeder to flush it.



All that said having it rebuilt or simply running a JY unit with good looking seals would be my inclination.

I'll have to use another wrench when bleeding but I can deal

the brake kleen is for clean up of grease, am I missing something?
I wasn;t planning on messing with pressurized MEK, lol

Any oil / oil based fluid will attack the rubber seals and is a big when dealing with brakes.
