Each caliper is controlled independently by the BPMV (Brake Pressure Modulator Valve), there is no external proportioning valve.

Thanks Haro.....

Does the BPMV act like the 'old' proportioning valve when you bleed brakes? The old proportioning valves could cut fluid flow if it 'sensed' a 'leak'.... I'm about to replace the Master Cylinder and while I'm at it I intend to replace the brake fluid so I just want to make sure there's not valve in the system to cut off the flow and make it more difficult.... I know, with the old proportioning valves, you could reset them if they 'tripped'.....but that's a pain I was hoping to avoid....

Thanks for the response....

I replaced my brake master twice, and just bled the brakes like normal afterwards with no extra steps required.

Thanks for the response....I've never replaced the master on this car so I was wondering if that could cause an issue...good to hear it won't. I'm surprised that my master cylinder has lasted 20 years....Not bad...
