However, the small amount of fluid inside the pump will not be flushed out. I recommend flushing as normal. Then take the car for a drive find a dirt road where you can get the ABS activated easily under braking. Then drive home and flush the system again.
Most dealers don't bother with this, and those that know about it usually have a device that they connect up to the ABS pump so it pulses during a standstill, and they don't have to drive the car.
Honestly, I would suggest flushing the system once, then drive for a year and flush it again. Then again the next year....the amount of fluid in the ABS is quite small. Only worth flushing if you really can sense the difference.

That same shop also told me I need new brake pads (I had just had the brakes done) and didn't put enough ATF in.
