I'm going to be bleeding brakes on an XKR ('01) which has the Brembo brake package. I have a one man bleeder. Is this any different than any other car ? Just want to be sure there aren't any tricks with the ABS unit that would trip a light or anything.

thanks

Wow Ron- I "could" be wrong here, but 29 HUNdred dollars for a brake job (frt and rear) seems just a Little High......after you stopped laughing, you told 'em to pound sand, right?

Ron,
I'm with Tom, $2900 is a ridiculous amount to pay for a brake job! Buy your pads, disks etc off ebay (Brembos are available) and get any local garage to fit them. It really is not a job that you need to pay Jaguar $150 an hour for.

Warmest,

Rich
