Good information Tippey. I haven't tackled the ABS in my G1 yet, but it's on my list.

For anyone that wants to find the tool for sale online, the best way is to search the part number for the tools listed in the manual:

07HAA-SG00100

or

07HAA-SG00101

Edit:
DrDave, I noticed you have it listed on your profile that you live in Seattle.

I am getting code "1" for my ALB system. "pump motor overrun" but I have read online that all it takes to clear that up sometimes is to bleed the ALB system.

I live in Shelton, WA its like a 2 hour drive to seattle

but I would really like to clear this code and get the abs working if possible.

You can bring it over and we can check it out. Coordinate around the alleged lunch that appears to be falling flat on its face?

There are 2 of them. The G1 T-Handle is longer and will not fit under the hood of a G2, but inversely the G2 T will not easily reach the fitting on a G1.

I don't know which of your numbers is which, but I can check my G1 T later if no one else chimes in.

As of the last 8 hours I am modifying my opinion on ALB brake fluid changes. I have done quite a bit of investigation into the function of the ALB units and the effect of low viscosity brake fluid. I spent some time with a very knowledgable mechanic that knows how to think that I also trust. I appears that the system can be made to work much better with a low viscosity brake fluid. This is especially important since we rely on the ALB mostly in freezing temperatures. Ate (pronounced ah tae) makes a brake fluid called SL.6. I ordered two litres of it ($50). I will let you know as my investigation into this unfolds. I think regular brake fluid in the main system is just fine. I have been using the Motul RBF600 for the last few years. I am real happy with it. Probably going to be on a three year rotation schedule with that brake fluid.

In the original post back in May of 2010 I mentioned that I liked Valvoline Syntech brake fluid. They have since ceased production of that fluid. It appears that the brake fluid options at the local parts store is the bottom of the bucket as far as fluid goes.

More to come on brake fluid and the Legend.

Dave

Hi Dave, all three cars at my house are due for a brake fluid change. What fluid do you recommend for the main brake system? They are just my Legend and the 2 Lexus' so they are nothing high performance. Would it be worth while to use DOT 4 in these cars?

DOT 4 would be the way to go. There are a handful of good brake fluids available. I like the Motul RBF600. The lower cost option is the Castrol LMA. I am going to use the Ate SL.6 in ABS systems from now on. I have two litres on the way.

If you want to bring them up one at a time we could get all three knocked out over the period of a few weeks. Go find yourself two or three quarts of Castrol LMA and we will be set.

I'm going to get new brake lines for the legend in a few weeks so I can do it then. I can have my brother drive the es300 up there so we can do 2 cars. Thanks for the offer Dave!

Hi DrDave, I'd like to help you offset the cost of the brake bleeder tool. Please advise.
