    Does anyone know if the ECBTM can be pulled from a wrecked vehicle and installed in another vehicle? Is there any reason this shouldn't be done?

    Depends on the year and model.
    Some are plug and play, some require programming.
    Usually you can do it but you have to match up the numbers to be sure you have the right one, and if it needs programming it can be done, you just have to find someone that will do it.

    Re: EBTCM Removal.... any tips.

    Hi guys,

    I'm doing this right now and I'm wondering if it would be easier to remove the lines for the brake fluid and pull the whole assembly out? Its not a daily driver so its no problem if its down for a week or two while the module is getting fixed. Cheers!

    After I remove the EBTCM do I not need to bleed the brakes? I don't see any mention of that in any instructions.

    I believe the instructions in the following are pretty detailed and seem to indicate no touching of brake fluids,

    http://modulemaster.com/en/Cadillac/Catera_info.php

    The EBTCM just modulates braking pressure to prevent locking in support of the ABS operation. I believe the brakes still work without the ABS. Perhaps some of the experts can guide or you can contact modulemaster folks if you are getting yours repaired.

    Cheers.

    Re: EBTCM Removal.... any tips.

    It depends on what you actually remove.

    If you service the EBTCM with the hydraulic unit (BPMV) still mounted in the car, and you don't loosen any lines, then no.
    The EBTCM is a circuit board attached to several electromagnetic solenoids. The solenoids pull valves in the module but there is no direct physical link save for the bolts that hold the two pieces together.
    Basically the rule is, if you open a brake line, then you bleed it. If you don't then no need.

    I did that the whole thing out. I have no idea how you would get it out with taking the BPMV out also.

    Thanks.

    Replacing the EBCM without taking the BPMV can be done, but granted on a Catera, either way it is a nightmare.

    Re: EBTCM Removal.... any tips.

    I took my EBTCM out of my Catera the other day. I followed a combination of the instructions provided on this thread. However, when I separated the EBTCM from the BPMV, I did not see any wave springs. Where are the wave springs located??? and do I need them?

    I found it easiest to take the two nuts off either side of the BPMV, that way I was able to pull the unit up a little bit to get to the middle screws. The bottom ones took a combination of extensions as stated earlier in the thread.

    Also, here is a link to a company that rebuilds these for $50 on ebay. I am sending mine out tomorrow.
