10. Loosen, but do not remove, the two mounting screws (2) attaching the ICU (1) mounting bracket to the body.

11. Lift the ICU and mounting bracket (1) upward to near the top of the slots in the bracket, then snug one or both of the mounting screws (2) to hold the ICU in this position.

12. Lower the vehicle.

CAUTION: Before disassembling the ICU, the ICU must be thoroughly cleaned.

This must be done to prevent dirt particles and debris from entering into vital areas of the ICU.

13. Thoroughly clean all surfaces of the ICU and brake tubes. Use only a solvent such as Mopar Brake Parts Cleaner or equivalent.

14. Disconnect the ABM harness connector from the Antilock Brake Module (ABM). To do so:

  1. Depress the tabs on each side of the connector cover, then
  2. Pull outward and upward on the lower half of the cover until it locks into position pointing straight outward (2). The connector can then be pulled straight outward off the ABM (1).

CAUTION: When removing the ABM from the HCU, be sure to completely separate the two components (approximately 38 mm (1.5 inches)) before removing the ABM. Otherwise, damage to the pressure sensor or pump motor connection may result, requiring HCU replacement.

Do not to touch the sensor terminals on the HCU side or the contact pads on the ABM side as this may result in contamination and issues in the future.

16. Separate the ABM (1) from the HCU (2).

RIGHT-HAND DRIVE

NOTE: The ABM is only separately serviceable for non-HSA (Hill Start Assist) equipped vehicles. Do not remove the ABM for vehicles equipped with HSA.

1. Disconnect the negative (ground) cable from the battery and isolate it.

2. Remove air inlet hose (1) between air cleaner housing and engine.

CAUTION: Before disassembling the ICU, the ICU must be thoroughly cleaned.

This must be done to prevent dirt particles and debris from entering into vital areas of the ICU.

3. Thoroughly clean all surfaces of the ICU and brake tubes. Use only a solvent such as Mopar Brake Parts Cleaner or equivalent.
