How do you change the brake master cylinder on a 1995 Honda EX with ABS?
The good news is that since the ABS portion of the system is totally seperate, it's no different than changing a non-ABS Honda.
Be careful because brake fluid will damage auto paint.
it's pretty much:
1) detach brake line connections from MC 2) detach brake pedal connection to MC inside car 3) unbolt and remove old MC 4) Bench-bleed new MC, do reverse of steps 1-3
Finally, you need to bleed the entire brake system and make sure pedal-height is normal. Honda specifies using a depth gauge to set pedal height, but I have never had to adjust it.
remove 2 bolts and a cotter pin in the pedal,remove reservoir,unscrew fluid pipe,install new one,bleed clutch very nicelly
The master cylinder on a 1999 suburban is pretty easy to change. Under the dash, disconnect the clutch pedal from the cylinder rod. disconnect the brake lines from the master cylinder and allow to drain into a container. Unbolt the cylinder and remove.

The master cylinder can be easily replaced with a new unit, by disconnecting the brake lines, capping off the brake lines, detaching the old master cylinder by unscrewing two bolts. You must bench bleed the new unit before installing. Then reverse the above. Protect surfaces from brake fluid spillage.

If you make a mistake and put motor oil into your brake fluid could you lose your brakes and how long would it take to go through the system before you have no brakes.?
Good time to replace all the brake fluid. Remove the brake lines from the Master Cylinder and pump the master cylinder dry. Add fresh brake fluid from an unopened can and bleed the master cylinder. Reinstall the brake lines and then bleed all brake lines until you see clean fluid. Keep adding fluid to the Master Cylinder until you are done.
