Default 05 Grand Caravan SXT brakes

All concerned,

My 05 Grand Caravan SXT front brake locked up on the drivers side (was smokin & smelled great). I took it apart & decided to replace the caliper & of course brake pads. Now, I know the system needs to be bled. Of course it has ABS!! My memory isn't so good but the procedure for bleeding the brake system is??... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Jeff

Read the Sticky in this forum on gravity bleeding - might have everything you want to know.

I've been doing some research into brake bleeding. Do I have to depressurize my 05 Grand Caravan 3.8L SXT brake system before proceeding?? If I was supposed to I believe I would have already noticed any negative effects when I removed/replaced the left front caliper (drivers)?

Yep...followed the advice from Sticky in this forum using a Mityvac bleeding kit. And I'll have to do it one more time as the brake pedal is not far from the floorboard. More to follow...Thank you.
