1.5L engine, if it matters. The FR caliper has to be replaced; it had a goodly leak and dumped all the fluid. I don't know if it has ABS, but presume it does by that MY.

So, does it have diagonal braking, or F & R? If it has ABS what hoops am I going to have to go through, assuming there is quite a bit of air in there now?

PS: those fields for the M/M/Y and engine didn't appear until after I had written my post and tried to send it. Hokey. that info should be asked for right after the subject field.

Cancel the panic. It does seem to have ABS, but bleeding was quick-and-easy, just like proper/normal/good (take your pick, non-ABS is what I mean) brakes. There is an issue about rapid pad wear, though, that I will post about later.
